Nelson's Premier Swim Club

Based at Hampden Street Pool, Nelson South Swimming Club is for swimmers from 8 years and up.  Most of our swimmers train year round and compete in local, regional and national meets.  We also cater for non-competitive swimmers. 

We strive to help swimmers achieve their potential, have fun, and take pride in the history and achievements of their club.

We have a passionate coaching team who strive to get the best out of each swimmer.  Many of our swimmers compete and have placed at NZ National Level. 

If you're looking for a club that will help you achieve your best while making friends and having fun, have a look around our website and contact us if you'd like information about joining the club. 

Our Vision

At Nelson South, swimmers will achieve their potential in a culture of excellence and fun, respecting the Club’s history. Through leadership, parental involvement and a welcoming club spirit, we will promote competitive swimming to attract swimmers of all ages.

Supporters and Sponsors

Nelson South would like to thank our Sponsors whose support we gratefully acknowledge.
