Swimsation has now launched at Dunedin City Swimsation where our swimming lessons will be based out of the Physio Pool Dunedin. We are partnering with the Physio Pool to help them in their mission to remain open for the Dunedin community.

Cherie Oldham will be heading up our Dunedin team. Cherie has years of experience working in the swimming industry in the South Island. She is also a qualified secondary school teacher and has been relief teaching at various high schools in the Otago area.

Cherie and Spike will be out and about in Dunedin over the coming weeks to spread our water safety message, and they are available for bookings at your child’s school or preschool.
Head over to the Dunedin page under the Locations tab or email for more information.

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.


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.
