Based on Swimming New Zealand's foundation skills your child will learn entry, balance, buoyancy, breathing and water safety.

They will participate in lessons in inflatable boats and practice wearing lifejackets. Swimsafe helps children develop essential water safety and survival skills for life.

We run Swimsafe lessons at any of our Recreation and Sport Centres. We can also provide tutors to run the programme in school pools. The programme can be tailored to meet the individual needs of any school group. Lessons are typically 25 minutes in duration and booked in blocks of 10.
