Find your local YMCA Swim School here

Here at YMCA Swim School, we believe there is no wrong age when it comes to learning an essential water safety skill; especially when you are living in New Zealand where most of quality family time is spent outdoors in and around water.

We are a swim school for all ages

  • Babies and toddlers can take part in lessons accompanied by a parent or guardian
  • School-aged kids can get splashing in classes with low student to teacher ratios
  • Adults can develop their skills with learn to swim group classes or we also offer one on one tuition
  • Sign up for fitness or group squad classes to get on top of a particular stroke or train for your next big event

With dedicated heated pools providing a comfortable learning environment year-round, our YMCA Swim School programmes are here to help give you the introduction you’ve always needed – or the next step in your swimming skill development.

Baby Swimming Lessons

For baby swim lessons, the learning experience is just as important for the parent as the child. While your baby develops motor skills, independence and water confidence, you’ll learn important water safety concepts to help your child become safer in and around water.
