CitySwim has been operating in Wellington since 2008, primarily at Freyberg Pool on Oriental Parade. The programme was comprehensive but could only cater to a limited number of children, due to the lack of pool space available in Wellington at peak times.
With the development of the new pool (the Aquadome) we are now able to extend the number of lessons and options to cater to the increasing demand for quality learn to swim.
We offer a structured programme designed to teach children the basic skill and techniques to swim well. The programme has been developed by Gary Hurring , Olympian and one of New Zealand’s top development coaches, and Tash Hind, Olympian and Surf lifesaving World Champion. It will to allow the child to progress, through a step-by-step process, from first strokes, in the learn to swim pool, to competent swimming in the 25 meter section alongside. The important aspect of this programme is that the child can make that transition when they are ready, in the same location, and feel confident about doing so. A small shallow pool can only offer so much and then its time to move somewhere else, whilst at the Aquadome it’s all under the same roof and makes it a lot easier.
Our coaches are experienced swimmers with an absolute passion for passing on what they love to the next generation.
The pedigree of the programme is second to none and choosing the best can only benefit your child in the future.
