Learn to Swim

Evolution Aquatics Tauranga offers a specialised Learn to Swim (LTS) programme for children aged from 2 years. Our carefully structured, technique-based programme ensures that when swimmers are ready they are offered a seamless transition through to EVO’s competitive and fitness squads.

We offer low ratio classes in our learner levels which make for a great balance of teaching new skills and reinforcing current skills whilst making the lessons enjoyable and fun.

Student assessments are conducted on an ongoing basis to ensure all children are in the appropriate skill level.

Swimming, like any other physical activity, is based on development levels and needs to be practised and re-enforced continually. Apart from the health and safety benefits of swimming, lessons also enhance social, emotional and physical well-being.

Our Instructors

Our passionate team of EVO instructors undergo training every term. We also conduct NZ Police vetting for all of our instructors.

Free Swimming Assessment

In most levels in our programme, new members will be required to have a free swimming assessment to ensure that they are placed at the correct level for their current skill set. Please note that levels are based on ability, not age. This takes Approximately 15 minutes and is conducted by one of our supervisors.

Beginner swimmers who are not yet comfortable submerging will not need an assessment.

Assessments can be booked by email, phone or by seeing our friendly team poolside.

Our classes operate during the school term, Monday to Friday afternoons from 3.30 – 6.00 pm and Saturday mornings (Terms 1 & 4 only) from 8.30 – 12.00 pm.
