Otumoetai Swim Club offers a specialised learn to swim program for children aged from 5 years.  Our carefully structured, technique-based program ensures that when swimmers are ready they are offered a seamless transition through to OSC’s competitive and fitness squads.


We offer low ratio classes in our learner levels which make for a great balance of teaching challenging new skills, reinforcing current skills whilst making the lessons enjoyable and fun. 


Student assessments are conducted on an ongoing basis to ensure all children are in the appropriate skill level.


Swimming, like any other physical activity, is based on development levels and needs to be practised and re-enforced continually.  Apart from the health and safety benefits of swimming, lessons also enhance social, emotional and physical well-being.                                                          

Our Instructors 

Our friendly OSC instructors undergo training every term and hold a SNZ Swim Teacher Award.  They have also been successfully processed through an NZ Police check.


Our Programs

In most levels in our program, new members will be required to have a Free-swimming assessment to ensure that they are placed at the correct level for their current skill set.  Please note that levels are based on ability, not age.  This takes Approximately 15 minutes and is conducted by one of our friendly supervisors.   


Beginner swimmers who are not yet comfortable submerging or floating will not need an assessment.


Assessments can be booked by email, phone or poolside.


Our classes operate every weekday afternoon from 3.30 – 6.00 pm and Saturday mornings from 8.30 – 12.00 pm during the school term.  We also run holiday intensive lessons during the school holiday, click here for further details. 


Our preferred method of communication is either in person poolside or email. 


We do have a club phone but is only maned prior to our afternoon swim sessions.  It is best to call between 9 am 2.30 pm Monday to Friday.  If your call is unanswered please leave a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
