Good luck to Jenna Rolston-Larking, who this Thursday is leaving to represent NZ at the Australian State Teams Short Course Champs which take place 22-24 September in Canberra as part of the National Development team.

Congratulations to Joel Crampton on his selection into the Wellington City Council Talent Identifcation (TiD) Programme for 2017! 

Swimming Wellington’s All Stars Development programme has been selected to be a part of the Wellington City Council Talent ID Programme which is administered by the Sport Wellington Performance Hub. This partnership allows athletes selected onto the programme to have access to High Performance Sport New Zealand resources. The All Stars Development programme is set to work towards developing athletes at a performance level in order to promote a smoother transition into the Power of Black and High Performance environment. The aim is to work with identified athletes on developing core foundation level skills required to train, compete, balancing study with training, family life and peer contact. The project is planned around developing the athlete’s ability out and in the water. [Information from Swimming Wellington website]

What a fantastic opportunity for Joel. Congratulations also to former Tawa Swimming Club member (now at Capital) Justin Roberts, also selected for the programme.

Tawa Swimming Club is located in the suburb of Tawa, 15km from Wellington City.  Our aim is to promote, foster and encourage swimming.  We accept children from the age of five who can complete two lengths (50m) freestyle and two lengths backstroke and 1 length (25m) breaststroke.  Our emphasis is not only on teaching children to swim but introducing them to the competitive sport of swimming.  We do this through our monthly club time trials, and as children progress through the levels of the club they are given the opportunity to join our competitive squads.
If you are interested in club swimming for your child please contact our Club Captain.
If you are wanting to join our competitive squads (entry criteria apply) please contact our Head Coach
