Coming Soon to our Active Attitude Whangarei Gymnasium - Swimming Lessons!
We are excited to announce that we will be setting up a portable pool for swimming lessons in our gymnasium for the Summer period. These lessons will start on Monday 17th January and will go through until the 30th April.
Our pool size is 9.5m x 4.5m and we will be offering a range of classes and private lessons.
Private lessons are $50 per 20-minute lesson and are with Coach Ashleigh.
Class lessons are $74 per month for a class membership. If you register part way through the month, the online booking system will pro rata the first month's fee. 30 days notice is required to cancel class membership. We do not provide make-up sessions for absences, but each class membership receives a complimentary monthly token that can be used for booking in for an extra session throughout the month.

Are you an adult who has never learnt to swim?
Did you have a bad experience which put you off water? Does your child have a fear for water or are they currently struggling to learn in a group situation? Private one-one lessons may be a good option.
