The start of something extraordinary

2016 New Zealand Zonal Championships

Sir Owen G Glenn National Aquatic Centre 13th February 2016

Swimming New Zealand (SNZ) is proud to announce the return of the Zonal Championships to the competition season for 2016.

With the generous support of long time swimming supporter, The Brian Perry Charitable Trust, this action packed, fast paced meet will pit the four zones of Swimming New Zealand against each other to determine a champion team.

The Zonal Championship is based on the collegiate swimming competitions that are held in America. New Zealand has been split into 4 zones (franchises). Each team will consist of 40 swimmers made up of: 20 under 15 boys and girls and 20 16 and over men and women.

This action packed event will take place over 4 hours split into two sessions with the sessions being broken up with a legends relay, with the hope of having New Zealand Swimming legends and other sports codes among the competitors.
