If you’ve been putting off getting your children swimming – or learning to swim yourself – now is the time to take the plunge! No matter how old or how young, there’s a YMCA swim school programme suited for you and your family.
The earlier children get familiar with water, the easier it is for them to adjust to the aquatic environment – and they’ll have a better relationship with water and swimming from the get-go.
And for older swimmers, there’s a whole spectrum of training available – whether it’s getting started for those who haven’t had experience but would like to learn, or working on technique for a particular stroke in order to improve racing prospects. Whatever your age or skill level, our swim school at Lagoon Pool and Leisure Centre managed by YMCA would love to have you along.
To ensure you receive the highest teaching quality our swim teachers receive on-going training, are AUSTSWIM qualified and are police checked. We have a variety of different teachers to suit your needs.
We understand that schedules can be busy that's why we offer swimming lessons 7days a week. With a number of different options available we are sure to have a class that suits you.
Maximising potential and seeing swimmers progress is important to us. We aim to keep our instructor to student ratios as low as possible to ensure the best learning results.
YMCA Swim Schools have been recognised recipients for a number of AUSTSWIM Aotearoa awards in 2015 and 2016. Awards include; Swim Centre of the Year, Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety, Teacher of Infant and Preschool and Presenter of the Year.
Before you begin lessons with us we offer a free assessment to ensure your child is in the right level for their development. Throughout the programme children are continually assessed and will be moved up once they have achieved the level goals requirements.
No matter what the weather, we have indoor heated pools perfect for swimming all year round. Our purpose built facilities are designed for ease of use with baby change tables and family changing rooms situated readily on poolside
It's never to late to learn to swim
