Competitive Squad Training


Based at the Northcote College Aquatic Centre, NZL Swim is one of the most dynamic and advanced swim programmes in the country. With a staff consisting of former and current national and international swimmers, experienced and qualified teachers and passionate, highly motivated coaches, we offer a comprehensive range of classes from those first few tentative steps into the pool, through to competition at the highest level.

As you can see, there are two pathways to follow depending on what you want from your swim training.
