We are affiliated to Swimming Bay of Plenty (regional) and Swimming New Zealand (national) and operate within their rules and regulations.

All our coaches are passionate about swimming and helping others to achieve their goals, they are great at encouraging and supporting our swimmers to push outside their comfort zones to believe in themselves to see what they can achieve.

Our squads range from Juniors – Junior Academy & Junior Olympian’s and Seniors – Intermediate, Age Group/Competitive, Youth/Tri/Teenfit & Masters.  

Your ability along with your goals will determine your squad and the amount of times you will need to swim per week.
