Hilton Brown Swimming has been successfully teaching New Zealanders how to swim since 1973. Today we’re teaching the children of the children we taught back then. Our focus is equally on fun and technique.

The teaching methods we use have been continuously fine-tuned since our founder, Hilton Brown, left the world of international competitive swimming to establish his swim school. Each one of our teachers has undergone a rigorous 30-hour training programme to qualify as a Hilton Brown swim instructor.

A point of difference for our swim classes is a continual review progress that celebrates success and promotes children to the next level as soon as they’re ready to move up. This speeds their journey to becoming competent, technically-correct swimmers.

Hilton Brown isn’t just for children. We run fitness squads and coaching programmes for adults as well.
