Police Vetting

The Swimming NZ Police Vetting policy is an essential part of its proactive and preventative approach to ensuring that every person involved in swimming is treated with respect and dignity, and protected from abuse.

Swimming NZ is committed to eliminating discrimination, harassment, child abuse and other forms of inappropriate behaviour from our sport. Swimming NZ will take all practicable steps to verify the suitability of individuals wishing to be involved in national events and other events or activities as identified by Swimming NZ, the regions, and clubs.

Swimming NZ requires individuals who operate at a club, regional or national level who wish to act in a role (paid or voluntary) that will have sole or joint responsibility for children or vulnerable people, to undergo a police vetting check (police vet) prior to being approved. Following the initial satisfactory police vet, coaches are to be vetted every two years and technical officials, managers, and others every three years thereafter
