Our SwimWell programme offers year-round affordable swimming lessons for children aged 5 months to 14 years, no matter what level they’re at. They’ll gain confidence, make friends and learn water safety skills for life.
Lessons run during the school term and are priced from just $10.80, with LeisureCard holders eligible for a 20 percent discount.
Your child can join a class at any time of the year, and while enrolled in the SwimWell programme, they can swim at all of our pools for free. Some pools also have toddlers' pools, spas, and saunas!
We have four indoor heated pools to choose from; Karori Pool, Keith Spry Pool in Johnsonville, Tawa Pool, and Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre in Kilbirnie.
