Junior Academy


We run a very successful Junior Academy which operates in the 25 metre pool at the Rotorua Aquatic Centre. We offer lots of flexibility with our classes as we know that families are very busy with their children doing other sports and activities.


The classes are 60 minutes long and operate each day from Monday to Friday starting at 4.00 pm and 5.00 pm. Wednesday starts at 3.45 pm and 4.45 pm.


We always have 2 coaches on the pool deck each day who all professionally qualified and who are super passionate about helping your child swim better. Our 3 guiding principles that we focus on  are Fun, Friendship and Fitness. 


We have 3 different squads

  • Junior Platinum (Stage 6)
  • Junior Diamond (Stage 7) – some classes are a joint delivery with the Swim Magic Swim School who is our key partner
  • Diamond Advanced (Stage 8) Outside 50m pool

Scholarship Fund

We also have a Scholarship Fund to help those families who are keen to join the club but need some assistance. Over the years, the Fund has helped many families enjoy swimming at a much lower cost.
