SplashSave Water Safety programme

In support of the National NZ Under-fives Water Safety Strategy (Wai Ora) SplashSave is offering a programme which helps you to teach your own whānau water safety and swimming skills.

This short video shows how the programme works. Twenty per cent of all proceeds are donated to the SplashSave Foundation which delivers this programme for free in higher risk communities where cost is a barrier to participation.

A discount code is available which gives you 30% off the usual programme price of $69 ($48.30) and includes free delivery anywhere in New Zealand.


The Discount Code for 30% off is: Waiora

You can visit the SplashSave YouTube Channel or follow us on Facebook for free teaching tips and guides on using the programme.

CoachForce contact list

The purpose of CoachForce is to provide coaching workshops to up-skill coaches/teachers and parent coaches (not children!) to run more effective training sessions, gain more confidence and become better coaches by learning new skills that are appropriate for the children’s age and experience level.

We recommend that your school adopt a policy under which school sports fees are raised by $2-4 per child to cover the cost of up-skilling all coaches.
