Kiwi West Aquatics Swim Club

About Our Club

The Kiwi West Aquatics (KWA) Swim Club has been training competitive swimmers in the Manawatū since our formation when West End Swim Club and Kiwi Sports Clubs merged.

We continue the heritage of these previous clubs; swimmers still compete for trophies that pre-date the formation of KWA.

Our club continues to seek excellence in swimming, with a team of skilled coaches, a high-quality training programme, and dedicated lane-space in the West End indoor (all-year) pool.

As an active member of Swimming Manawatū our swimmers participate in regional comps, inter-club meets, and National and International meets.


Our Coaching team provide dedicated, a high-quality training schedule.
