Do lessons follow the school terms?

Yes. Our swimming term follows the school calendar. In addition to the standard four terms, we offer intensive programmes during school holidays to help boost your child’s swimming ability.

What experience and qualifications do the instructors have?

All of our instructors receive extensive in-house practical and theory based training, as well as attending the national STA course (Swimming NZ Swim Teacher Award). This is a nationally recognised qualification which all instructors complete to ensure consistency within the swim school.
