At The Y (formerly YMCA) Swim School, we believe there is no wrong age when it comes to learning an essential water safety skill; especially when you're living in New Zealand, where most of your quality family time is spent outdoors in and around water.
With dedicated heated pools providing a comfortable learning environment year-round, our swim programmes are here to help give you the introduction you’ve always needed – or the next step in your swimming skill development.
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.
Toddlers and preschoolers are adventurous, learning and discovering new things every day. Building on water confidence Preschool Swimming Lessons introduce structured progressions with a strong emphasis on swimming skills and water safety.
Whatever your child’s experience with swimming, The Y's school-age classes are ability based and cater to all levels of experience. Classes are based on structured progressions with a strong emphasis on skill execution and water safety.
Whether you want to develop some skills to stay safe around water, or you learned the basics a long time ago but feel that you need a refresher, adult swimming lessons can help you gain the confidence you need in the water.Learn More
