With so many people saying it couldn’t be done, all it takes is an imagination. – Michael Phelps


In addition to mastering skills and achieving physical fitness, the NWU aims to help swimmers develop self-confidence, sportsmanship, discipline, dedication and the knowledge that success is the result of hard work and goal setting.

We try to make swimming at the NWU an important and enjoyable part of the swimmers' lives.

Students are given the opportunity to achieve their goals in swimming at the levels they strive for. Every swimmer is a recruitment agent for the University for their favourite sport.
