Bay Venues proudly supports this initiative and work alongside Sport Bay of PlentyWater Safety NZ, and TECT to deliver the Water Skills for Life programme at our venues across Tauranga.

This programme supports 10 schools in the Western Bay of Plenty that do not have pools by subsidising the cost of water safety sessions and transport to the pool if required.

The programme focuses on improving the students’ confidence and ability for the following water survival competencies:
  • Water Safety and Awareness
  • Getting in and out of the water
  • Submersion
  • Personal Buoyancy
  • Orientation
  • Safety Propulsion

More information about the water survival competencies can be found on the Water Safety New Zealand website.
