7 out of 10 Kiwi kids cannot swim. As a nation surrounded by water, learning to swim should be considered an essential life skill which you should invest in for yourself and your family.
Our swim lessons involve all aspects of swimming and are designed to enhance enjoyment and confidence in the water whilst learning the skills to swim and survive.
"I love Northern Arena because it is so well thought out. The kids can move up levels in their swimming lessons as soon as they are able, so there is no mucking around in classes that are too easy. The facilities are warm and clean, which makes it so easy with wee kids hopping in and out of the pool. Northern arena is awesome- friendly staff with amazing teachers. My son loves your swimming school too & gets really excited when he's told 'we're going swimming today"

"Our daughter loves swimming every week and has been doing so since she was 5 months old and we don't want to stop anytime soon. It has helped her development, co-ordination and social skills greatly and she looks forward to swimming each week."

"Northern Arena is great! Coming from a women's only gym I was a bit nervous at first, but it's been an easy transition and I've become even more motivated. Such a great facility that caters for anyone of any fitness level. The trainers are encouraging and friendly, the group exercise classes are really motivating and fun - and conveniently timed. It's got a great community vibe too!
