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.


Winter swim training starts on Monday, 12 June 2017, and will run until the end of October 2017 at the Richmond Aquatic Centre .


Training days/times by squad are listed below:

  • Gold   - 7.00 - 8.30pm (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday) with Jos,

  • Silver - 7.00 - 8.30pm (Monday, Wednesday) with Shirley &
