Aquatics Strategy

Aquatic Network Strategy 2012-2022

Aquatic Network Strategy 2012-2022Aquatic facilities are unique community assets that provide significant health, fitness and social benefits to Tauranga’s population. The 2001 Aquatic Strategy was developed to guide the provision of swimming pool facilities in Tauranga. The development of Baywave TECT Aquatic and Leisure Centre was one of the key actions of the Strategy.

Reviewing the 2001 Aquatic Strategy has provided an opportunity to reflect on the existing vision and objectives and to assess the community’s aquatics needs over the next ten years and to explore how these can be best met  given the current budget constraints.

The Vision

‘Active in the Pool for life… healthy, physically active communities’

The aquatics network contributes to developing and supporting physically active and healthy communities. Water safety education is promoted through the development of confidence and skills gained from both recreational play and learn to swim programs.
