We are now accepting registrations of interest from swimmers wishing to attend our 2021 swim camps to be held during the July school holidays.  We are excited to confirm Donna Bouzaid as Head Coach, Donna is a Gold Licence coach who has represented New Zealand at an international level.


These camps will educate swimmers of the importance of training for fun, training to be skilled and training to race as a key part of their progression.  Skill based sessions will provide swimmers an opportunity to develop their capabilities, improve their fitness while developing resilience and giving them good time management skills.


Swimming Taranaki are committed to athlete development and will provide coaching at no cost to the swimmers.  We are hopeful to be successful in receiving external funding towards the pool hire and accommodation costs associated with these camps.  Swimming Taranaki aim to make these camps as cost affordable as possible.


We do require the help of our swimming community with supervision and meals, this can be a very rewarding role and one that we must fill before any camp goes ahead.  Please indicate on the registration form when your family can assist thank you.  Swimming Taranaki will require any parent volunteer to be police vetted.   Those parents who have been vetted within the last three years are not required to be vetted again.
