The Roskill Swim Club was established in 1955 by the late Artie Shaw who served as the Vice President of FINA (swimming's world governing body) and is the grandfather of two times New Zealand Olympian and Roskill swimmer Trent Bray.

Outstanding results were created in the 1970s-1990s through coaches such as former New Zealand Olympic coach, the late Ross Anderson (Senior) and Hilton Brown, with the success continuing under New Zealand Assistant Coach Dean Greenwood and former Australian Coach John Marshall until 2000.

Roskill Swim Club has had a proud history, having produced numerous Olympians including Anthony Moss, Paul Kingsman, Mark Weldon, Trent Bray, Paul Kent, Richard Lockhart, Silva Hume, Nick Tongue, Mark Kallagaur, Brett Austin, Mike Davidson and Ross Anderson (Junior), as well as countless Commonwealth Games Representatives. It is a history that our members are very proud of and serve as benchmarks for the next generation of swimmers to aspire to at Roskill Swim Club.

The current Director of Coaching, Josh Munro has achieved outstanding results with swimmers consistently achieving medals nationally. Our 2014 New Zealand Halberg Emerging Talent Award recipient Gabrielle Fa’amausili’s success at the 2013 World Championships saw her return home with gold having broken records for both the Championship and New Zealand.
