Intensive Learn To Swim Holiday Program
Learn To Swim Fast
Week 1: Monday 28 September - Friday 2 October
Week 2: Monday 5 - Friday 9 October
The Northern Arena week-long intensive learn to swim school holiday program provides your child with the perfect opportunity to improve, enhance, or kick start a key life skill.
Children learn by repetition. While ongoing swimming lessons are important to improve a skill throughout the year, an intensive holiday programme can give a child a quick burst of learning. Reinforcing these water skills on consecutive days helps children learn to swim faster, gain more confidence, and improve their fitness levels.
The Northern Arena intensive learn to swim school holiday programme, at New Zealand’s Swim School of the Year, consists of a swimming lesson a day for 5 days. We teach all aspects of swimming in order to enhance enjoyment and confidence in the water, as well as the skills to survive. These school holiday activities take place in our swimming pools each day.
Whether you are a current Northern Arena student, or new to our swim center, we have just the right level of learning to swim programs for you. If you are not currently a swim school student we simply need to conduct a quick five-minute swimming assessment, before your learn to swim intensive course begins in order to get you started at the correct level.

10 Reasons Why You Should Book A Holiday Programme
1. Kick start your child’s swimming lessons.
Children learn by repetition. While ongoing lessons are important to improve a skill throughout the year, an intensive programme can give a child a quick start to learning a skill. Reinforcing a skill on consecutive days helps children learn faster, gain more confidence and improve their fitness levels.
2. It is ideal for the timid swimmers.
Improving and gaining water confidence can be difficult for those children who have had a fright in the water or for the child who has not had an opportunity to learn in a safe environment. Successive positive lessons can reassure the child and start them on their way to swimming.
3. Give your child a boost.
For the child who is already swimming, constant repetition speeds up the learning process. If the child is stagnating in a level, a holiday programme may help them achieve the skills they require to move on.
4. Reinforce new skills.
If your child is struggling with new skills an intensive programme may assist them in mastering the skill.
5. Make your child safer in the water.
No one is safe in the water. Children can be made safer by being fitter, stronger and more competent in the water. With swimming knowledge and ability there is less chance of panic setting in if they get into difficulty.
6. Build fitness and technique. Constantly reinforcing technique will speed up the learning process while swimming everyday for one or two weeks will improve fitness and speed of young swimmers.
7. Prepare your child for the school swimming sports.
By learning correct starts and turns plus race technique, your child will be better prepared for the school swimming sports. Make the school swimming sports a positive event for your child.
8. Keep your children busy over the holidays.
We know how difficult it can be to entertain the kids over the holidays. As New Zealander's, we live near the beach and summer is often spent in, on or under the water. All New Zealanders need to learn the life skill of swimming. Why not do this in the holidays keeping your children busy, getting them fit and keeping them active. Show off to the Grandparents or friends. Holiday time may be a time for visitors so bring them to Northern Arena for an outing to see the progress your children make.
9. It’s a Great Social Activity
Water is a great place of social interaction for all who take part. Lakeside, oceanside, or poolside - they’re an awesome place to hang out with friends and family. Socializing leads to better mental health and gives students a chance to develop their social skills and build positive relationships. Studies have shown that children who learn to swim early on, also develop social skills more quickly than their peers (Griffin University, swimming-kids-are-smarter).
10. Award Winning Learn to Swim School

“An Awesome swimming programme. The children loved it and learned plenty of skills.” L. Muffle
“My boy has his last swimming lesson for the holidays tomorrow [Friday] and I just had to share how grateful my husband and I are, he started out too scared to even get his face wet on Monday but by today [Thursday] he was holding his breath, putting his face in and swimming along with the kick board. We were so proud! He’s so excited about the water now and confidence is growing, nice to see our once water shy boy enjoying swimming and reassuring for us to know he’s on his way to becoming safer around water. Thanks!" D. Harris
“I just wanted to say how fantastic we found the holiday program. The teacher was amazing with our two older girls. He made it fun whilst expecting them to work hard. Our daughter has gone from jumping in feet first to mastering driving from the start board." Ngaire
