It’s never too late to learn how to swim

Tauranga Swim School has a wide range of classes for babies all the way up to experienced adults.


Can you swim? Can your children swim? As New Zealanders, we spend a lot of time in our pools and on our beaches and waterways, so it is important that everyone is given the opportunity to learn how to swim.

At Tauranga Swim School they have the right class for you. Locally owned and operated by owner Andrea Sinden, Tauranga Swim School prides itself on high quality lessons for all ages and skill levels.

Tauranga Swim School has programmes for all ages, which includes baby-parent classes, preschool, school age and adult.

Their wide range of classes can also be adapted for those with disabilities, while also aiming to help improve water confidence, fitness and technique.

This includes working very closely with people with aqua phobia, where one is given the skills to become confident and comfortable in the water. 

Within Tauranga Swim School there are classes for water safety to teach how to tread water, stay warm and what can be used to stay afloat.

“I’m very passionate about reducing the drowning statistics and doing whatever I can,” says Andrea.

Tauranga Swim School is based out of the Toi Ohomai Polytechnic, with swimming lessons running Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3.30pm and Saturday mornings. Private lessons are also available, so contact Andrea for more info.
