Swimming is a summer sport and students compete in term one in the School’s Swimming Sports Day held at the Military Pool. A team is selected for the Selwyn Central Zone Championships in Term 1. To gain selection into the School’s Swimming team students need to qualify within certain times.
From Zones you can then qualify for Canterbury’s. This is dependent on your race times.
