Ace Swim School - Hamilton, NZ


Both our girls have been taking swimming lessons at Ace Swim School for nearly two years now and have absolutely loved their time there!

Ace is a lovely little 10m pool located on Casey Ave where the water is warm, the pool is shallow enough (only 1m deep) for them to stand up in and the teachers are extremely competent, patient and friendly. They hold baby, pre-school and school age lessons and are passionate about teaching children how to enjoy the water as well as to be safe in the water. Children learn the four strokes in a fun, safe environment and gain the skill of swimming for life. I could not recommend it more!

As a family, we chose to stick to the block courses every school holiday as they fit in best with our schedule... The girls progressed so much during the course of each week, so it was definitely a great option. They are extremely confident in the water and are such happy little swimmers now - for that we cannot thank you enough. All of the holiday block courses run for a week, Mon-Fri, at the same time with the same teacher each day. They are held at Ace except over the summer holidays when they are held at Peachgrove Intermediate pool - a solar heated 25m pool that gives them the experience of depth and longer lengths.

After the children complete certain levels or finish a block course they are assessed and given certificates to reward their progress. This is a great motivation for them to work hard, try their best and progress - plus it keeps it fun.

To everyone at Ace Swim School, we thank you immensely for everything you have done for both of our girls. Thank you for your patience, your kindness and your expertise. Arabella and Lucy love the water and are so proud of how much they have progressed by having lessons with you. We will miss coming but wish you all the very best for the future!
