Piha SLSC is involved in delivering innovative pool programmes to our members to increase ability, confidence and inclusion whilst all aiming to decrease the drowning statistics in New Zealand.

Piha Ngā Wāhine o te Wai

The first programme, the Piha Ngā Wāhine o te Wai is an innovative programme devised to tackle a number of issues but primarily focusing on bringing women and rangitahi back into the water. The goal is to create a fun, supportive, inclusive environment for all wāhine, so we can grow confidence, swim ability, fitness level, and connect and engage with wāhine in our club that are not currently engaged in water activities.

Piha Ngā Tāne o te Wai

The success of this programme has led to the development of the Piha Ngā Tāne o te Wai which is delivering the same environment for our men. With swimmers from every ability, including those who are entirely new to the water - we are seeing real change in both ability and confidence in an enviroment where everyone is accepted.

These programmes are really changing lives and we are grateful to everyone involved in their conception, development and delivery. Thanks to SLSNR for supporting these programmes through funding for pool hire.

If you wish to join one of these programmes, or support through sponsorship, please email the team. We would love to get you involved!
