Information for New or Prospective Swimmers
Onehunga Swimming Club is based at Jellicoe Pool, Onehunga. It is a registered charity and provides competitive and non-competitive swimming training and learn to swim lessons.
Learn to Swim
We teach learn to swim in the small pool (from age 5), and in lane 6 of the big pool. Lessons are half an hour long, and are at 7pm or 7.30pm on Friday and 6.30pm or 7pm on Sunday nights. You can choose to swim once or twice a week. We swim in the last weekend of the school term but do not swim in the school holidays.
Children are placed in the class applicable to their ability. Children progress up the classes and will move into the big pool when the teachers consider they are ready.
Once children are able to swim all strokes and after discussion with the relevant coaches, they can move to the mini squad group. These children swim three times a week on Wednesday 7-8pm, Friday 7.30-8.30pm and Sunday 6.30-7.30pm. We swim in the last weekend of term but do not swim in the school holidays
Fees are payable on a term basis, you will be invoiced by the club and can pay at the pool by cheque or cash, or by internet banking.
Learn to swim:
$120 per term for once a week
$175 per term for twice a week
Mini squad: $175 per term
There is also a once a year swimming registration fee. This is $20 per learn to swim or non-competitive swimmer, and $120 per competitive swimmer.
What to do now?
If your child is interested in joining OSC come down on a Friday or Sunday evening with their togs and goggles and our coaches will assess which group would best suit them.
