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.
