Capital’s objectives are to:
- Provide, encourage and promote the instruction and coaching of and participation and competition in swimming and aquatic sports in the Wellington area;
- Provide facilities to achieve our objectives;
- Assist all swimmers to achieve their maximum potential in all aquatic disciplines at all levels; and to
- Actively promote the ideals of true sportsmanship, club spirit and friendship.
Capital has a proven track record and a team to cater for swimmers of all levels. We aim to develop each swimmer’s talent to its fullest potential and in doing so, instil the key principles of:
- Water safety;
- Best technical practice;
- Goal setting;
- Work ethic;
- Good sportsmanship; and
- Team spirit.
To achieve these objectives all our activities are underpinned with the following values:
Respect: We treat people with respect and value diversity. We give people proper credit and stand up for others.
Courage: We persist despite barriers. We focus on the positive and maintain enthusiasm even after disappointment.
Determination: We actively work to achieve goals even when facing obstacles.
Fairness: We operate with integrity, demonstrate honesty and keep commitments.
Achievement: We set challenging personal goals, work tenaciously towards them and derive satisfaction from their achievement. We accept responsibility for the outcomes (good or bad).
Fun: We take time out to enjoy our own and others’ company. We participate, initiate and encourage others to socialise in squad activities outside of the pool.
Team Spirit: We support and encourage team members, take pride in the team’s achievements, demonstrate Capital’s values and communicate passion for the Club.
Capital Swim Club offers swimmers an opportunity to be the best they can be, while enjoying the journey. Capital Swim Club’s programme offers flexible training times and styles, and is designed to suit everyone from young athletes to international representatives.
