Para swimming


Parafed Auckland run a small training group under the coaching of Shaun Foley, it is designed for athletes who are able to swim multiple laps and wish to train for regional and national events. We work with Swimming NZ and Paralympics NZ to identify and develop athletes who wish to take the sport seriously.

Para swimming is swimming for people with impairments resulting from a health condition (disability). Para athletes can have a physical, visual or intellectual impairment and compete in a variety of classification classes, depending on their functional ability to perform each stroke. Para swimming competitions include freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke and medley events.
