Overview

United Swimming Club offers a full pathway for swimmers from the early stages of competitive swimming through to senior competitive swimming and fitness squads. Our competitive swim programme has earned us an enviable reputation as one of New Zealand’s top swimming clubs.

United Swimming Club is based in central Auckland. We provide our swimmers with dedicated and experienced coaches at conveniently located facilities that support training in both 25 and 50 metre heated indoor pools, combined with a supportive and active family community that contributes on a wholly voluntary basis.

Our coaching team is led by Olympic gold medallist, Igor Polianski. All our coaches have a broad-base of experience in teaching at ‘Learn-to-Swim’ level and coaching through junior to advanced levels of competitive swimming. In addition, all our coaches who themselves have excelled at competitive swimming, understand the commitment and support that swimmers need to achieve their full potential.

We aim to create a positive and supportive environment that keeps swimmers interested and motivated. Swimming can be a time intensive sport and requires the development of a broad range of life skills, including commitment, goal setting and careful management of the demands of school/university and extracurricular activities. United understands these challenges and provides opportunity for our swimmers to learn these important life skills and enjoy the positive affirmation that follows their hard work and commitment and the camaraderie generated from training and competing together as a team.

United is affiliated to the Auckland Swimming Association and Swimming NZ
