2018/19 Annual Report

Please find a link for the Swimming Waikato  Annual Report 2018/19 which was released at the recent AGM.

Trust funding is vital to the ongoing operation of Swim Waikato programs and the organisation is extremely grateful for the support during this financial year from Trust Waikato, NZ Racing Board, Brian Perry Charitable Trust, NZCT, The Lion Foundation, Grassroots Trust and WEL Energy Trust.

The Regional Development Program has made a positive impact on developing coaches and swimmer pathways in the region. The delivery of combined squad training opportunities and camps for identified swimmers has been successful. The increase in swimmer numbers attending national meets is an indication that our swimmer pathway is achieving positive results. The program has successfully operated at the budgeted break even level for the year.

Capital expenditure during the year included the investment of new touch pads and backstroke wedges.

Swimming Waikato would like to acknowledge the continued support from Craig Blackmore during the year. His contribution to the preparation of monthly and year-end financial reports is highly valued and greatly appreciated. We would also like to thank Cherie McCleery for her hard work in putting together the annual report and for her hard work and contribution to the Swimming Waikato Hub Programme,
