Stratford Swimming Pools

First Race (the relay) @ 10.30am

Enter Now using the form below!!!

If you are taking your child straight to swimming sports at Stratford, can you make sure to contact the school prior.

We aim to start races at 10:30am, and expect the event to last around two hours in total. The first race up is the relay.

Students need to come to school dressed in their whanau colours and wearing their togs underneath. If you are unsure which whanau your child is in please check out this link.

There will be a bus to get students to and from Stratford, but we appreciate all those who have also put their hands up to help out. Please be at school at 9.30am.


When entering events, please choose either the Main pool events (lengths) OR the Junior/Middle pool events (widths).

Main Pool

For races in the Main Pool, times are taken for each heat. The fastest three from each race will represent the school at the Mt Spa Swimming Sports. In some cases we may take four swimmers for an event if the times are extremely close between third and fourth to take into account possible differences between the stopwatch time.

There are no finals.

Junior/Middle Pool

Rods are given out to first, second, and third placings (dependent on parent availability), and whanau tokens are given to rest of swimmers.
