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 funding available through the Halberg Foundation’s Activity Fund for those aged between 5 and 21-years-old. The Halberg Foundation is an organisation our National Para Swimming Development Coordinator works closely with to enable a transition and pathway from the learning to swim space into the regular swimming in the 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.
