Swimsation Swim Schools focuses on a simplistic, positive, fun, learning experience for all students.

We started in 2001 and are a 100% New Zealand owned and operated brand. There are currently four Swimsation Swim Schools throughout New Zealand. East Tamaki, Te Atatu and Papakura in Auckland, and another facility in Dunedin.

Swimsation Swim Schools cater for all levels of swimmers, from our specialised babies programme, to pre-schoolers, school-age, squad swimmers, and adults. The Swimsation curriculum allows for all swimmers to learn in a safe, comfortable environment under the tutelage of our professional, friendly staff.












Swimsation has been based at our East Tamaki facility since May 2008. We offer lessons to the local community in a private, indoor, heated 15 metre pool. East Tamaki Swimsation is open for lessons 6 days a week and lessons are delivered by a team of fun, enthusiastic and dedicated swimming instructors.


We offer:
– Swimming and water safety lessons for all age groups
– School group lessons (funded and user pays)
– Preschool group lessons
– Lane swimming
– Venue hire for pool parties
– Preschool Spike visits with water safety talk
– Aqua aerobic classes to suit all fitness levels


Swimsation found a home in Papakura in 2008. We started with a swim school of only 300 and have more than doubled in size. Now open 7 days a week, we are the only swim school in Papakura that offers a private pool, with lessons operating in our custom-built 15m indoor heated pool.


Te Atatu Swimsation and Spike have called Peninsula Primary’s indoor, heated 25 metre pool home for almost 8 years. We started in 2007 and now operate 7 days a week and are able to offer options to fit in with all our customers busy schedules and preferred teaching styles.


Birkenhead Swimsation will be launching in January 2019. Lessons will be run out of Birkenhead College in their 25 metre outdoor pool. We will be running lessons for preschool, school age, squad and adult swimmers in Term 1 and Term 4.
