Class levels at Takapuna Learn to Swim

Which class is right for me or my child?

Follow the flow chart below to find the right level for you or your child.

If you are new to Learn to Swim lessons, you will be a beginner in your age group.

If you have had lessons before or time has lapsed since your last lesson, we recommend you get an assessment.  An assessment can be booked through the link below.

School holiday learn to swim courses

Holiday swim courses run over five consecutive half days (four if there is a public holiday) from Monday to Friday. Courses may be in the morning or the afternoon. We take enrolments for complete courses only.

If your child is a bit stuck on an element of their swimming, by coming every day for five days they'll normally crack it. Conquer that learning to breathe, breaststroke, or butterfly!

How to book a school holiday course

Contact us using the details on this page, or talk to the Learn to Swim team at the centre. A free assessment may be required to determine your child's level.


Swimming lessons and water safety for schools

We’re experienced and skilled at working with schools, tailoring programmes to schools’ needs and the age and stage of their students:

  • swimming lessons
  • lifejacket usage
  • deep water confidence
  • boating experiences.

Lessons can take place in our facilities, or our instructors can come to you if your school has its own pool.

Auckland Council Pools and Leisure is a partner in the Water Skills for Life programme of funded school swimming lessons.

Group fitness classes

Group fitness classes get you off the couch and interacting with our community. They also harness the group's energy to create a motivating, challenging, and totally addictive workout experience.

They're a great way to change things up and make the most of your workout!

Play your role

Keep everyone safe and healthy with good hygiene practice - here are a few friendly reminders of the basics:

  • Bring your water bottle and towel - No towel = No workout!
  • Bring your mat to any floor-based classes (e.g. yoga, Oxycore, Abs, etc.)
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes (into your elbow or with tissues and dispose of these into the bin immediately)
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Wipe equipment you have used - while our staff clean regularly, we need your help too (we have wipes and spray for you to use)
  • Shower before you swim or jump into an aqua class (helps us keep our pools clean)
  • And, stay home if you are unwell - play it safe!

View class timetable and booking information

  • Book into group fitness classes related to your membership up to a week in advance.
  • You'll be notified of any class cancellations by email.
  • You'll receive confirmation of a booked class in a form of an admission ticket.
    -  You don’t need to do anything with the admission ticket, just scan your membership card upon arrival.
  • Please visit reception upon arrival
