On the 5th to the 9th May 11 swimmers from the North Canterbury Swim Club attended the 2015 National Age Group Competition at the Wellington Aquatic Centre.  The swimmers achieved plenty of personal best times with 67% of their swims as PB's - four swimmers actually achieved 100% personal best times.

Brigitte Mahan, WaiSwim head coach said it was a great meet with lots of awesome swims. She said they had a fire alarm one night which delayed the start and saw the evacuation of the entire complex.  SNZ named the teams for Youth Comm Games and Junior Worlds and the Outward Bound week.  She was very proud of all our athletes and their attention to detail and organisation during the week was tremendous.
