Life’s safer with Northern Arena


Book A Free Assessment Now

For Ages 3+ 

New to swimming? Returning after a break from swimming lessons at Northern Arena?

Because Northern Arena’s learn to swim classes are set by ability rather than age, we assess every child’s ability to ensure they are swimming at the correct level within the swim school program. 

Each learn to swim assessment only takes 5-10 minutes. The instructor will ask your child to perform a few simple tasks in the water.

For your child’s FREE no-obligation learn to swim assessment, simply fill in your details below and we’ll be in touch as soon as possible.

Thursday 2.00 pm -  4.50 every 10 minutes

Sunday 12.30-2.00 every 10 minutes

Please note: Other times may be available by prior arrangement.

  • If you intend on joining the Northern Arena Swim School please bring along a credit card or your bank details to ease the registration process.

“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 - My son loves your swimming school too & gets really excited when he’s told ‘we’re going swimming.”

“A wonderful friendly establishment. I am REALLY enjoying all the activities we are involved in, especially my own swimming, as a beginner it took a lot of courage to give it a go myself!”


“Our children are very lucky to have this facility and opportunity. My children love coming to your school and your coaches are professional and so involved with the kids and correcting them in the water etc.” L. De Vincenzo

“Fantastic facilities and great staff. Amazing with the babies swimming lessons and our son loves his lessons.”
