Swimming

 DSC9640
Our main swimming season starts in the Michaelmas Term with club and provincial training and competitions continuing through to the Easter Term. Facilities include a completely fenced 25 metre racing pool and diving well with a separate 18 metre pool used for various training exercises. All children at Ruzawi receive some form of swimming coaching from Grade 1 through to Grade 7. Swimming is part of the morning timetable for Grades 1 to 4 and an extra-curricular sport in the afternoons for all children. The school team has done particularly well in recent years and competed in as many as 7 inter-school galas over the term. Children who wish to take their swimming further have the opportunity of joining the Doradoes Swimming Club which trains on a Tuesday afternoon at Ruzawi. We have a number of qualified swimming coaches who keep updated with swimming trends and techniques.

Every year some members of Ruzawi’s swimming team represent the Mashonaland Country Districts at the Junior National Championships. Some children have gone on to represent Zimbabwe.
