Improve your Swimming

  • 3 days ago · 7:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

***** Have the basics. Need some Style*****

Are you not a strong or confident swimmer? Do you get puffed-out after a length? Do children point at you and laugh? 

If so, this could be the class for you.

What to expect:

Howard will check your swimming style, then give you some basic tips and exercises to help improve your stroke.

The one hour class runs from 7:30-8:30pm on Wednesdays, and we have a dedicated lane for AW attendees. Feel free to use the pool before or after the lesson if you are keen. Its very informal, and we usually have between 4 and 8 attending.

Our wonderful instructor Howard is giving his time for Free (though there is a charge to cover lane hire). The swimming pool is enclosed and the water is heated, so this event will go ahead in all weather.

What is included: 

Howard will assess your swimming style and suggest tips to improve your kicking, stroking and breathing technique, all at your own speed.  You can even view a video of your swimming, to see what it looks like to others.

The aim is to get you to enjoy your swimming more, and manage 8 lengths non-stop. So that ocean swim or triathlon can now be a goal not just something you dream about.

 Difficulty Rating:

Cost: $10.90

Lane Hire: $5 to be paid in cash to your instructor Howard.

Pool Entry: $ 5.90  (you can buy a 12 trip for $58.50)

Improving your swimming skills takes practice so expect more than one session to be required. While there remains demand these lessons will be held regularly subject to Instructor and lane availability.

What to bring:

Togs, towel and swimming goggles. Fins and floats will be available to share.

Location: The pool is located in Karori, in Donald Street.

Catch a Number 3 bus ($5) to Karori (leaves  Paramount, Courtenay Place 6.49pm).

Some useful Links to help with your swimming:

Whilst every possible assistance will be offered, Adventure Wellington Trust, the Trustees, Event Organisers/hosts and members cannot be held responsible for any accident, injuries or losses sustained leading up to, during, or after an event.

No show policy: If you no show to this event you still owe the $5 lane hire cost as this has been split over all the attendees. I will be contacting you, please respect that Howard is providing his time for free & asking him to also cover to pool costs would just be rude.
