After completing the school-age group lessons, children can progress into mini squads where the focus is on increasing water safety skills, swimming distance and technique.

COVID-19 Alert Level 2 update for Swimsmart

Swimsmart lessons are running during Level 2 but with limited times and programming. This allows the instructor to be outside of the pool, which is safer for our staff and customers (physical distancing). 

At Taiora QEII, Graham Condon and Pioneer, only Tigersharks, Barracudas, Marlins and Squads are running. At Jellie Park, only Barracudas, Marlins and Squads are running.

Lessons will begin on 25 May and will run for six weeks until the end of term two. We’ll review this offer for term three.
