Competitive Squads

For all Competitive Squad enquiries please contact the EVO Club Administrator at

Members who enjoy racing will have the skills and technical ability to continue on a competitive swimming pathway following the completion of Stroke Tech. EVO's competitive pathway offers support for swimmers to take the step up from local to regional, and national-level competitions.

Members of our competitive squads are expected to make swimming a priority sport.

Regional Squad

Regional Squad members continue detailed technique development while increasing their aerobic and anaerobic fitness. The increase in training volume at graduated intensities facilitates conditioning to support their target competitions - BOP Junior Clash, NZ AIMS Games, and the Aquaknights Junior Festival. 

Regional Squad members can attend up to five sessions a week

Regional Squad training gear - kickboard, fins, pull buoy, hand paddles, snorkel, and drink bottle

National Squad

Evolution Aquatic's National Squad is for members aiming to maximise their long-term potential in competitive swimming. National Squad members swim at a Div II and national age group level. Their programme creates opportunities to attain targeted results at the New Zealand Div II competition, National Age Groups, Secondary Schools, Short Course Championships, and beyond.

National Squad members are encouraged to discuss their goals and training schedule with the EVO coaching team to form an individualised training plan
