SwimZone Racing is the Hutt Valley's renowned competitive swimming club, with a long history of success in the Wellington region and at a national level. Our key philosophy is to develop the fitness, skills and competence of young swimmers so they can achieve their potential as competitive swimmers. As part of that journey we aim to provide opportunities to develop important life skills and lasting friendships through attending national events, development camps, away meets and fun nights.
Our Aquakids programme has 4 ability-based squads. They are designed to develop correct technique and endurance. After completing the Aquakids programme, swimmers will be proficient in all 4 strokes, competitive dives and turns, and have a basic understanding of swimming rules and principles.
These groups emphasise endurance, perfecting technique and mastering competitive starts and turns. Swimmers will start as club members and enter Timezone and local meets to gain experience, develop friendships, resilience and confidence as a swimmer. They can then progress further into competitive swimming and become full competitive members of the club, aim to qualify for regional meets and prepare to enter one of the competitive squads.
Our competitive squads range from 10-18 years, most start out in our top junior squad and are aiming to develop their potential as a competitive swimmer. Some of our swimmers have achieved national records and aim to move into elite level swimming.
