School age swimming lessons are carefully organized in both age and ability. Lessons are structured and provide a clear path to gain new skills and progress, while being fun and supportive.

Swimmers will work their way through learning all strokes as well as key water safety skills – developing good technique and great cardiovascular fitness as they do it.
Learning to swim as an adult can be a daunting prospect – so it’s a brave decision to make! It’s never too late to learn, and having a good understanding of swimming technique and safety around water means that you’ll not only be better equipped to stay safe yourself, but you’ll be able to make sure that your whanau stays safe too.
We're here to help - our instructors are friendly and approachable, and united in their goal to develop your competence and confidence in the water. It's not about the perfect swan dive, it's about equipping you with swimming skills and water safety knowledge so you can join in with the fun and thrive in the water.
