At Nelson South Swimming Club not only will you get a top quality swim coaching program, but you’ll also get the chance to meet new people, travel and develop friendships for life!  Every swimmer's development is important to us.  

The Club’s swim program is run by our head coach, Glen Findlay through Hampden Swimming Institute.  For the summer season, training is based predominantly at Hampden Street School Pool. During winter, training is moved indoors to Riverside Pool with some sessions at Richmond Aquatic Centre.

If you're keen to join Nelson South Swimming Club:

  1. Assessment: Please get in touch with our head coach, Glen Findlay at to book an appointment to have your swimmer assessed. 
  2. Trial: Once assessed your swimmer will be told which squad is the best starting point.  Your swimmer might like to have a trial for a week to meet the other coaches and swimmers and make sure they’re happy. 
  3. Join the Club: When your trial is over and your swimmer wants to keep swimming, you will need to join the Club.  Joining is easy – you just need to complete our online Membership Form.  Before you do, please read about our Membership Fees
