Welcome to Waimea Swimming Club


Waimea Amateur Swimming Club is the oldest swim club in Nelson. It is a fully volunteer, parent run club. Our coaches are all volunteers and give up their time to coach our swimmers.


We have four squads: Gold (seniors), Silver 1,2,3, Bronze and Copper. Children move up through the squads as their swimming proficiency increases.


Waimea Amateur Swimming Club operates out of the solar heated Waimea College outdoor pool situated in sunny Richmond, Nelson.  We swim at the College pool over the summer season and the Richmond Aquatic Centre over winter.


Summer swim training at the Waimea College pool started on Monday, 6 November 2017, and will run until mid March 2018, with a two week break for Christmas/New Year.


Training days/times by squad are listed below:


  • Gold   - 5.00-6.30pm (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) with Eileen & Jos,

  • Silver - 5.00-6.30pm (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday) with Shirley, David & Eileen,

  • Bronze - 5.30-6.30pm (Monday, Wednesday) with Andrew, and

  • Copper - 4.30-5.30pm (Monday, Wednesday) with Krystal
