Fundamental Movement Skills                                                                      

Kiwisport is a government funded program that aims to get more children into sport by providing funding to schools for several different programs.

We provide block swimming lessons for children from many different schools in the Cannons Creek/Porirua area, including Titahi Bay and up to Pukerua Bay.

Each school has up to 8 lessons with our qualified instructors providing a quality water experience for all involved. We teach basic water skills to extension classes for those that are already swimming capable.

Every school that comes through experiences the Water Safety programme we run through Dash Swim School.  Everyone thoroughly enjoys the program and it is proving to be a worthwhile experience for all those that have been through it so far.

Find out from your teachers when your school is due to come in and head down to see what is happening for yourself.  Experience the difference Cannons Creek Pool and Dash Swim School are making with your school.

General Swimming Sports                                         

 

Cannons Creek Pool is well designed for swimming sports with our grandstand seating and smaller venue that allows us to close off to all public.

There is ample space for competitors and spectators as well as an outdoor area that can be utilised.

Available Monday to Friday during school hours and weekend afternoons, contact us for more information!
