The Family

Life’s safer with Northern Arena

It Couldn't Be Easier

Joining Northern Arena’s award winning learn to swim school couldn’t be easier.

The swim class, direct debit, perpetual booking system is designed to make your life easy with swim classes running all year round (except Christmas and New Year) removing the need to rebook every term and ensures your space and booking continues. This progressive swimming model allows your child to move to the next level as soon as they have attained the required criteria - so you don't have to wait until the end of a block of lessons to move up!


Steps To Join

All swimming lessons are set by ability rather than age. So before coming a swim school member we need to assess your child with a short 5-10 minute free swim assessment to ensure they begin swimming at the correct level (except under 3 years).


Once your child's level has been established, speak with one of our friendly reception team or call them on 09 421 9700 to find a time and day which best suits you. All times are subject to availability.


Complete a Northern Arena Swim School Direct Debit Authority Form – You can pay your fees from either a credit/debit card or a nominated bank account. Please complete a form below for your chosen option.
