SWIMMING NZ REVIEW Background A Working Group was established to undertake the Review of Swimming New Zealand (SNZ). The Working Group found SNZ lacking in clarity of purpose and short on the fundamentals needed to support the growth and development of what should be a very strong sport in New Zealand. In order for Swimming to move forward in New Zealand, the Working Group has recommended changes all to be implemented and not cherry picked by the sport.
SWIMMING NZ REVIEW Recommendations SNZs core focus becomes competitive swimming Teach the Teachers function is transferred out of SNZ, but clubs remain delivering Learn to Swim if they wish A new SNZ Board composition & appointment process A redefined CEO role Constitutional voting be based on competitive Regions reduce in number – to be managed by the Regions themselves New Competition zones The sport fully supports & agrees to participate with the Board in the development of a whole of sport strategic plan A comprehensive database is developed and used by the sport The sport collectively commits to building a culture of trust collaboration & discipline in its processes and systems
SWIMMING NZ REVIEW Special General Meeting A Special General Meeting was held on Saturday 28 th July to accept the recommendations. Recommendations have been accepted by SNZ members
