Entertainment Team

Our ‘Entertainment Team’ help to make swimming lessons a positive experience. We suspect the children think more about coming to see the pet pig & chickens in our mini farm than learning to swim … deliberately designed to create a friendly and fun, safe place where children look forward to visiting. Don't forget to bring your food scraps to feed the entertainment team!

“We just want to say a HUGE thank you to you and your amazing bunch of teachers for what you have given our two boys over the past few years! We are so appreciative of your professional, no-nonsense but caring approach to helping our kids learn to love swimming. Certainly something we believe they have both gained from being at The Swim Centre. Fingers crossed we can find somewhere like The Swim Centre in Tauranga” Dean, McKenzie & Sam’s dad – (school age from Torbay)
