Goldfields Swimming For Life


It’s been over a year since we took over the Goldfields Swim School at Paeroa and introduced our Swimming For Life programme and since then,¬†we’ve delivered lessons to well over 100 families from the wider Paeroa area.

The Goldfields School pool provides a fantastic venue for this programme, with an indoor heated pool with a ramp which enables us to cater for all levels of learn to swim.

Chris Jolly is taking over the operation of this swim school and will work alongside Head Teacher, Jan Clayton, to continue to deliver a programme that prepares swimmers for the transition to the Paeroa Swimming Club. ¬†Lessons follow Swimming Waikato’s Swimming For Life Resources and we’re already seeing some fantastic progressions through our Swimming For Life levels, with some of the older children now ready to progress to the Paeroa Club.

Our Swimming for Life Resources, developed with the support of Paterson Burn Optometrists, are available for clubs and schools within our region and if you’re interested in a copy, please contact

We wish Chris all the very best with this new venture and we’re looking forward to seeing a whole heap of capable young swimmers emerge from this programme.
