Piopio Swimming Club news

ANOTHER successful season from Piopio Swimming Club. With 23 clubswimmers and 54 learn-to-swim kids swimming four afternoons each week at Piopio in February and early March. Our pool space was at capacity.

Many of our swimmers stood out at school swimming sports, and those who got the opportunity to represent our club and their school at Waitomo Interschools Swimming Sports and King Country Secondary Schools, did so with fantastic results.

Twelve swimmers qualified for the Waikato Full Primary Schools Swimming
held at St Peters at the end of March, and two club swimmers have also qualified for Waikato Secondary Schools Championships held on May 18.

It is always a great opportunity for our swimmers to experience and see how they compare to those who swim all year round.

We are very fortunate to have the continued support of many volunteers to keep our community pool open, as well as those who coach and assist with our programme to continue to offer affordable and local swimming lessons. Thank you to all those who are involved.

Prizegiving was held in early May to officially celebrate the success of our swimmers.
