WELCOME TO THE PIRATES SWIM TEAM: HANDY HINTS

Karori Amateur Swimming Club was formed in 1964 before becoming the Karori Pirates Swimming Club on 2 May 2007 and as of 2016 the Priates Swim Team. 
It is a community based, volunteer club at home in the Karori Pool, 49 Donald Street, Karori. It offers professional swim training dedicated to providing its members with the highest quality teaching techniques and training programmes.

If you'd like to join it's not difficult, just follow the instructions on the website www.karoripirates.org.nz or alternatively follow the one page guide available around the swimming pool's noticeboards. Remember to accept the e-mail invitation to join the Pirates competitive swimmers e-mail group so that you get all the latest info re club activities, meets etc. This is important as it's the main method of getting current information out to members and if you don't you might miss something vital such as revised dates or timings.

However you may well come from a non-swimming background in which case, like we did, you'll have plenty of questions; the sort of thing you only discover the answer to once you have been part of the club for six months! So to avoid that unnecessary six month learning curve below are outlined handy hints that refer to each of the main aspects of club swimming.
