The SwimMagic Programme



We have developed a swimming education programme that will have you or your child swimming to the best of their abilities in the shortest possible time. Our programme is broken down into 5 areas to assist in maximum learning.

Magic Moments is our specialised baby, tots and toddler swim programme which caters to the physical, intellectual, developmental and emotional needs of our students during this essential time of growth. We create a warm caring and safe environment, and together with parents and caregivers provide opportunities for learning through exploration and play. Our classes are 25 minutes and require a parent or guardian in the water. Our programme is tailored to children from 6 months – 3 years. These classes are available Monday – Friday 9am - 12pm and Saturday mornings 9am - 12pm.

Our Pre School classes are 20 minutes long, with a maximum of 3 children per class to ensure maximum learning time. Each of our Pre School levels has four goals which need to be achieved before a child can move onto the next level. These classes are designed for children aged 3 years – 5 years.
Classes are available Monday – Friday 9am - 12pm and 3pm - 6pm and Saturday mornings 9am – 12pm

Our School Age classes are 25 minutes long, and are ability-based. With 5 levels to our School Age Learn to Swim Programme, these lessons feed through to our squad classes and cater for children 5 years and above. Classes are available Monday – Friday 3.00pm – 6.00pm and Saturday morning 9am – 12pm

Our Squads programme is split into 4 levels: Bronze, Silver (30 minutes), Gold (45 minutes) and Platinum (1 hour). These classes are held in the lane pool and the instructor is out of the water, correcting from the side of the pool. Classes are available Monday – Friday 3.00pm – 6.30pm

Our Adults programme has 5 levels, Introduction (30 minutes), Beginners (30 minutes), Intermediate (45 minutes), and Advanced (1 hour). These classes cater for a range of abilities from absolute beginners through to advanced swimmers who wish to improve their technique and endurance. These classes are available Monday - Friday with evening options.

All current customers who were enrolled in Term 2 lessons at the Rotorua Aquatic Centre have been assessed by their instructors and will be automatically enrolled into the new SwimMagic levels for Term 3.
