Membership Types & Fees

Our Club works alongside the SwimZone coaching business, enabling swimmers to develop their racing skills.  Racing is a huge contributor to swimming development so all our coaches really encourage it.  The whole focus of our Club is to attain higher levels of success in competitive swimming. We are not a learn-to-swim club.  We are a TEAM of competitive swimmers, with an aim to consistently be in the Top 5 clubs in New Zealand.
