The start of something extraordinary

Exceptional learn to swim experience at Kaikohe Amateur Swim Club

Alannah Jury recently spent a week in Northland where she visited Kaikohe Amateur Swim Club to assess some of their swimming instructors.

In early 2013 Kaikohe Amateur Swim Club instructors attended Swimming New Zealand’s Assistant Swim Teacher Award course in Auckland.

Since then they have been working hard to complete the assessment requirements, with seven instructors passing the final requirements during Alannah’s visit in March.

The Kaikohe Amateur Swim Club is providing their region with an exceptional learn to swim experience where the standard of teaching and swimming is above and beyond.

The team of volunteers at Kaikohe Swim Club are doing a great service to the community and it is great that so many of the instructors are qualified swim teachers and are providing a consistent swimming programme across all levels.

The club’s goal is to have more people in the region confident in the water and having the ability to swim and survive.

The club offers swimming lessons and coaching at a rate that is financially appropriate to the community and rely on the support of the community for equipment and other resources.
