PAK'nSAVE Programmes Pool availability

The toddlers pool is always available during the week and the PAK'nSAVE programmes pool has some space set aside for public use 95% of the time.

We have several schools coming in for lessons during school time with our instructors (which is fantastic!), but we have scheduled the bookings so that there is always space for other people too during this time.

The only times the Programmes Pool isn't available are: Monday and Wednesday from 3.30pm - 6pm, Tuesday 6pm - 7pm and Saturday morning until midday.

Swim Test - main pool

Only those 8 years and over are allowed in the deep water (2.4m).  For those under 8, space is available in the shallow water (1.2m) and in the PAK'nSAVE Programmes Pool at various times throughout the week.

To ensure everyone who visits Coastlands Aquatic Centre has fun in a safe environment, all children aged 8 to 13 years who wish to swim in the deep water (2.4m) must pass a swim test.

The test will be:

  • jump in
  • tread water for 1 minute
  • swim forward 25 metres without stopping
  • climb out

Treading water means being able to support yourself easily in an upright position in water. Then swim forward confidently, without pushing off the pool floor.

Swim nappies must be worn by all babies and toddlers under four.

Coffee is from Kapiti Coffee Company.
