Swim with us

Swimmers of all levels of swimming ability and confidence are welcome to join us.  Our coached sessions always have two lanes – faster and slower – and you can slot in the lane that suits you best.

If you’re an absolute total beginner though – you might like to go to a learn to swim class first.   (Wellington City Council runs classes for people of all ages, and we’ve also run our own from time to time.)
