Swimming

Often seen as an individual sport, there is great camaraderie amongst the Newington swim team both in training and competition.

At Newington every swimmer is a valued team member and is given the opportunity to perform.

At Newington every swimmer is a valued team member and is given the opportunity to perform. Through dedication and hard work, Newington’s swim team has gone from strength to strength.

A school-based and community squad program along with our Swimming NSW affiliated club, Newington Swimming Club, ensures all of our students have the opportunity to train and compete at any level – from beginner to National.

Our swimmers have the privilege to train at our onsite, indoor, heated 25-metre pool. Recent and upcoming upgrades to the facility include new changing facilities and state of the art starting blocks. This makes our aquatic centre a great place to train.
