PSC are affiliated to the swimming regional body, Swimming Waikato. All swimmers pay a registration fee annually with Swimming New Zealand (SNZ) whether they are a Club or Competitive Swimmer. The SNZ Registration period is from 01 July to 30 June each year.
PSC is run by a committee of dedicated volunteers who meet once a month, helping to organize competitions, meet entries, swim camps, fundraising, club nights, officials training and are also responsible for the administration and finances of the club. Without our dedicated committee, PSC could not function and new members are always welcome. Alternatively if you would like to offer your assistance, but do not necessarily want to be a committee member, your help is also gratefully received. For further information, please contact our Club President, email@example.com
PSC CLUB NIGHTS
We are one of very few clubs in the country, who have sufficient qualified officials to run and ratify our own club nights. Ratified club nights allow swimmers times to be approved by Swimming New Zealand, which are able to be used to qualify for regional and national events. In addition to our annual club championships, club nights are run approximately eight times per year at the Franklin Pool and Leisure Centre, offering a comfortable and competitive environment for all levels, from new swimmers through to high performance.
