Kids underwater enjoying the Holiday programme at Northern Arena Learn to Swim School

Intensive Learn to Swim Holiday Programme 

Week 1:  Monday 2 October - Friday 6 October
Week 2:  Monday 9 October - Friday 13 October
Booking open 4 September

Lessons range from 30-45mins and are held from 9-11am onward depending on the level at which your child is swimming.

The Northern Arena week-long intensive learn to swim school holiday provides your child with the perfect opportunity to improve, enhance, or kick start a key life skill.

The Northern Arena intensive learn to swim holiday programme, at New Zealand’s Swim School of the Year, consists of a lesson a day. We teach all aspects of swimming in order to enhance enjoyment and confidence in the water, as well as the skills to survive. Lessons take place in our swimming pools each day.

Whether you are a current Northern Arena student, or new to our facility, we have just the right level of learn to swim programmes for you. If you are not currently a swim school student we simply need to conduct a quick five minute swimming assessment, before your course begins, in order to get you started at the correct level. Please note, we do not offer parent and child learn to swim holiday programmes.

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 key life skill. Reinforcing these skills on consecutive days helps children learn faster, gain more confidence and improve their fitness levels.

Don’t worry if your child is a timid swimmer.  Gaining water confidence can be difficult for many children who have not had an opportunity to learn in a safe environment or those who have had a scare in the water. Successive positive lessons can reassure the child and start them on their way to swimming.

If your child is stagnating and not improving our holiday programme may help them achieve the skills they require to move on.  This also applies to your child if your child is struggling with new skills, an intensive programme may assist them in mastering these skills.

Why Choose our Holiday Programme?

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.

Ideal for the timid swimmer to improve water confidence. 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.

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.

Reinforce new skills. If your child is struggling with new skills an intensive programme may assist them in mastering the skill.

Make your child safer for summer. 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.

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.

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.

Keep your children busy over the holidays while learning a life skill. As New Zealanders 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.

Socialise at the cafe or work out in the gym while your kids swim. Northern Arena has everything to entertain the family for a whole morning. There is an awesome café, so bring your friends and have a coffee while your kids swim or use our supervised play area child care facility whilst you work out.

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.

Learn to Swim at NZ’s Swim School of the Year. Northern Arena is NZ’s fastest growing swim school and New Zealand’s Swim School of the Year 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 awarded by NZSCTA.

Testimonials

“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! We plan to get him into regular lessons now for sure. Thanks!”
D. Harris

“I just wanted to say how fantastic we found the race prep 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. Both our daughters are both looking forward to the next race day. Thank you.”
