Swimming New Zealand

Swimming New Zealand provides training for those involved in learn to swim education. Our aim is to ensure swim teachers receive support and information and are recognised for the contribution they make in ensuring every New Zealander has the opportunity to learn to swim.

We have a team of regionally based staff who are available to meet the training needs for all people in the community involved in teaching learn to swim. This includes courses, workshops, qualifications and poolside assistance. We work with swimming club volunteers, professional swim teachers, parents, school teachers and other interested individuals giving them skills and knowledge to teach learn to swim to infants, children, adults and those with special needs (including people with disabilities and cultural/linguistic requirements).
