Disability Swimming

We're committed to providing equal opportunities for all New Zealander's to enjoy the freedom's of being in the water. Through our disability swimming program we've helped hundreds of kiwi's and we'd for you to join us!


Swimming for everyone


There is a grant available for those aged between 5 and 21 years, with physical or sensory impairments, through the Halberg Foundation’s Activity Fund. The Halberg Foundation is an organisation our Disability & Para Swimming Participation Manager works closely with to enable a transition and pathway from the learning to swim space into the regular swimming community.


Never too late to learn


Learning to swim has a range of benefits such as improved health and fitness, but these benefits can be even more relevant to those with an impairment. Swimming is great for people of all ages and it is never too late to learn.

  • Fostering physical fitness and motor skill development;

  • Improving confidence and comfort in and around the water;

  • Relief from tight or painful joints and tendons.
