Medallists at SNM Winter Meet Swimmers who wish to compete in inter-club swimming meets are required to register with Swimming New Zealand as either a club swimmer or competitive swimmer.

To compete in regional, South Island and national meets, a swimmer must be a registered competitive swimmer.

A swimmer who is competing only in inter-school meets, such as the Tasman or South Island Secondary School Swimming Champs, can register as a school swimmer.

To register, club or competitive swimmers must join one of the local swimming clubs. If you have questions please contact the Regional Registrar. School swimmers can register via the regional registrar when they enter a school meet.

SNZ registration fees for 2018-19 are $95.00 per competitive swimmer and $15.25 for club swimmers, for the period 1 July to 30 June. There is also a $5 equipment levy from Swimming Nelson Marlborough. These fees are additional to club membership subscriptions and fees. There are no fees for school swimmers.

Of the SNZ registration fee for competitive swimmers, $35 goes to Swimming Nelson Marlborough to support competitive swimming in our region.

Technical officials must also be registered with SNZ. The fee is $15 and is paid by Swimming Nelson Marlborough for 2018-19. This is subject to review each year.


If you wish to transfer to a new club, please ask your club secretary to initiate a transfer on the SNZ database. Swimmers must have paid all amounts owing to their existing club before they are eligible to transfer.
