2015 National Qualifying Changes

October 7th, 2014 

We would like to acknowledge and ensure all swimmers are aware of the following changes to Swimming New Zealand’s nationals qualifying criteria for the 2015 season:
SNZ Junior Nationals and SNZ Age Groups- Long course and converted short course times can be used for qualification. If a swimmer uses a converted short course time they will be seeded in the slowest heat.
SNZ Div II- The event will be swum as a long course event in 2015. Long course and converted short course times can be used for qualification. If a swimmer uses a converted short course time they will be seeded in the slowest heat.
SNZ Opens- Only long course times are able to be used for qualification. Swimmers may NOT use a converted short course time.
Meet fliers for each of the events are now available on the Swimming New Zealand website.

We encourage swimmers to gain their best long course time in order for them to have competitive advantage at a national level. Swimming Wellington is providing swimmers with three opportunities to obtain long course times for nationals qualifying times, these are: Swimming Wellington Signature Meets, Swimming Wellington Open Long Course Meet, and the Swimming Wellington Long Course Summer Champs. Additional meets in 2015 are being considered at this time, pending availability of pool space. Information about the mentioned above meets can be found in the ‘pre meet info’ section of the website, or from your club.


September 3rd, 2014 

Please see below for an update on the 2014 Zonal Championships from Swimming New Zealand. Please note the changed date for the championships is now Sunday 8th February 2015. 

Hello Zonal contacts & SNZ Regions,
At the Short Course Championships, the New Zealand Swim Teachers and Coaches Association called a meeting with SNZ about the date of the 2014 Zonal Championships. The  NZSCTA cited concerns that due to the date, many of the top New Zealand swimmers would not be available to attend this year’s Zonal Championships and would therefore have an adverse effect on the success of the event.
As a result of these discussions, SNZ would like to advise that the new date for the Zonal Championships is Sunday 8 February, 2015. The venue and session timing will remain the same as previously indicated.
The success of this event and creating an positive spectacle of our sport to broadcast of SKY Television requires these individuals taking part. A revised blueprint will be released by the end of the week with updated information based on this change of date. We would suggest that the NZ Short Course Championship that was designated a selection event for the October dated event still be used as one of the selection events but that regional championships happening in December and January also be added as additional opportunities for swimmers to qualify if that is suitable within your zone.
We have worked with both the Brian Perry Charitable Trust (event sponsor) and SKY Television over the last week to see if this alternative date can be accommodated and they have both accepted that in the interests of the success of this championship that this alternative date is more suitable.
