Millennium Swimming

Homeschool Swimming Programme @AUT Millennium 

Started in 2012 and coordinated by a local homeschooling parent, this excellent ‘Learn to Swim’ and swimming development programme runs weekly on a Monday at AUT Millennium and the Sir Owen G. Glenn National Aquatic Center. These superb facilities are situated on Auckland’s North Shore at 17 Antares Place, Mairangi Bay.

The Homeschool Swimming Programme runs all year round: 8 weeks each term.

The programme provides lessons for home educated students aged 5 through 17 years – absolute beginners, intermediate through advanced swimmers. Our Development Swimming Squad is for those who have achieved beyond level 7 and wish to maintain and improve technique whilst increasing speed, stamina, and overall endurance.

Homeschool Swimming achievement levels are:

HS Swim levels

Progress and assessment: at the end of each term a detailed assessment sheet (and certificate) is given to each swimmer – this helps the child to see their term progress and understand areas they need to work on; instructors also offer verbal feedback and encouragement. 

Swim times and lanes are allocated and depend on your child’s age and ability.

Placement is at the discretion of the programme coordinator and Millennium’s Schools Programme Manager.

This is an excellent swimming programme which sees many swimmers choosing to swim all year round. New Swimmers please complete and submit the pre-assessment form (see link below). Returning Swimmers please complete and submit the registration form (see like below). It is important to note that we do not take new or returning swimmers during term time (i.e.: once the 8 week swimming term has commenced); new swimmer assessments are completed at the end of each term in preparation for the following term. 

Term fee is payable in full upon confirmation of placement. Fees are payable to the Homeschool Coordinator. (As this programme is run under the ‘schools programme’ LEOTC scheme, a ‘school coordinator’ takes all registrations and payments.) All initial enquiries to Sandra Dawson – please do not contact Millennium directly, thank you.
