How to enter swim competitions

All entries for meets (local, out of region and national) are now done through the Swimming NZ website. It is KWA policy for each family to complete their own entries for meets except when advised otherwise by the Kiwi West Race Secretary.

The entries are then sent on to the club hosting the swimming meet as a team entry. Competition organisers usually only accept entries for club affiliated swimmers via the Swimming NZ system.

Normally a meet flyer will have a deadline for entries to be submitted – this is the last day when online entries can be made.

Where Is Meet Information Available?

  • Upcoming swim meets that we recommend for club swimmers are posted on the club notice board and listed in the upcoming events section of our website. These are events where a KWA Coach will attend to support the swimmers – except where we indicate otherwise.
  • The Swimming Manawatu website has a list of local events.
  • The Swimming New Zealand website has information about the national event programme.
