Enrol at SwimWright


We'll start contacting people on our waitlist for the next intake (Term 1) in mid December. 

At this stage it appears that some grades won't have a place for all our newcomers until Term 2, but we'll know more once our currently enrolled people have taken up the places they want.

If you'd still like to join us despite the possible wait, we'd still like to have you! Contact us now so we can arrange for assessment before the end of term. (If your child cannot float independently on their back and tummy they're in either our Preschool 1 or school age Beginner grades and they don't need to be assessed.)

Contact us to find out more about how to get Hamish to do an assessment.  There's no cost for assessment, of course.

Returning swimmer from past terms?  Let us know half way through the term before the one you want to enrol in. That way we have time to look for a place before we offer them to new people.

SwimWright teaches children from three years and older to pre-competitive level, at Wilford School pool in Petone, seven days a week during term time. 


Weekday preschool lessons are held at midday (and from 11am on Wednesday), and weekday school age classes start at 3.30pm.  On Saturday and Sunday there are both preschool and school age lessons.


We run one lesson in the pool at a time. The water is 33 to 34 degrees.  Hamish maintains the water quality; besides a  knowledge of swim teaching, he has many years' experience running pools, and holds internationally recognised water treatment qualifications.


There are no lessons in school holidays.


You can read more about  the skill levels here. Once your child reaches the 45-minute Advanced Improver 3 grade they're ready to move on to competitive squads and clubs if they want, and they're strong enough swimmers to take on any aquatic sport such as water polo or underwater hockey. 


We do not offer private lessons.​​

The cost for all classes is $165 for a ten week term.
