Dash group lessons

Our swim programme is aligned with primary school terms, which are usually 10 weeks, but can vary from 9–11 weeks. All group classes are $13.50 per lesson. You book and pay for a term's worth of lessons. The cost per term is usually $121.50 – $148.50, and needs to be paid before the term starts.

There is no swim school on public holidays, and your fees are adjusted accordingly. The cost for your term will be confirmed with you as part of booking. Contact us  (04) 237 1518 or dash@poriruacity.govt.nz if you have any questions.

Returning customers rebooking lessons

Returning customers are able to book for the following term midway through the current term. Your instructor or the pool supervisor will let you know when bookings open. Contact us  (04) 237 1518 or dash@poriruacity.govt.nz to confirm your place.
