Kids back in the swim

Monday 31 October 2011 | Published in Regional


The ANZ Tamariki Sports programme will splash back into swimming lessons on Wednesday, November 9, as the days grow hotter and the cooling sea beckons.

Sports coach Ake Hosea-Winterflood is looking forward to another fantastic season of swimming with children aged between 7 and 11 years-old.

The 6-week swimming programme will be held every Wednesday at the Social Centre beach opposite the national tennis courts from November 9 to December 14 and will focus on basic swimming techniques as well as safety around water.

Kids will need proper swimming gear including togs and goggles, plenty of enthusiasm and $5 for the whole six week course.
