Block swimming lessons – fundamental movement skills programme

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

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

Each school has up to eight lessons with our qualified instructors who provide a quality water experience for all involved. We have a range of levels from basic water skills to extension classes for those that are already swimming capable.

Every school that comes through, experiences the Water Safety programme that Dash Swim School runs. It's a thoroughly enjoyable programme that's proving to be a worthwhile experience for all.

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.


School swimming sports                                         

Cannons Creek Pool is well designed for swimming sports with our grandstand seating and smaller venue that allows us to close the pool to the public while they're on.

There is ample space for competitors and spectators, and an outdoor area that can be used.

The pool is available Monday to Friday during school hours and weekend afternoons. Contact us for more information.!
