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, Bronze and Copper. Swimmers 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 will start on Monday, 29th October 2018 for all our squads. Training will run until end of March 2019.


Summer training times and choice of days, by squad;

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

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

  • Bronze - 5.30-6.30pm (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday) with David & Andrew

  • Copper - 4.30-5.30pm (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday) with Emma & Elysia
