Community Swim

Community Swim offers free, professional swimming lessons to primary school children in Manukau. The programme is made possible by the John Walker Find Your Field of Dreams Foundation, Auckland Council and the Lion Foundation. The lessons are provided by SwimGym.

Community Swim takes away barriers teachers and schools face in providing basic yet essential swimming and water safety skills. Students are picked up from school in the Community Swim buses and driven to one of our pools in south and east Auckland, where they receive seven swimming lessons.
