NZ Swim Alumni



Who are we?

The New Zealand Swimming Alumni was established in 1989 to promote the disciplines of the sport of swimming and to assist athletes who have the potential to represent their country. We are proud to have supported many developing athletes with scholarships to assist their journey to achieve their goals.

What do we do?

We raise money throughout each year in a number of ways to support budding athletes achieve their international sporting dreams. Sponsorship and funding for individual athletes is tough in New Zealand so we work to support those who are struggling financially to attend international competitions and fund their training commitments.

Each year we host the Legends Relay with past internationals returning to the pool for some fast and fun racing. We are also lucky to have some amazing sponsors who support us - but we are always on the hunt for more!

Our 28 year longevity has enabled us to also invest trust funds and proceeds from these investments are distributed annually to athletes.

Who do we support?

Over the years, the Alumni has supported many developing international athletes and has now introduced an award for the New Zealand Swimming Alumni Emerging Swimmer of the Year.
