Monica Quirke: I have two children  Hazel (Junior Swim Coach and previous Competitive swimmer) and Jasmine Hagan (Youth Squad) My girls enjoy their swimming with Jasmine a Competitive swimmer and both Jasmine and Hazel compete or coach for for water polo. We have been with Swim Rotorua some seven years and I also became an Official; Inspector of Turns. From May 2018 I have been elected as chairperson. It is a great club and happy to do our bit and give back.


Matt Avis. I joined the Swim Rotorua committee from May 2018. My family and I have lived and worked in Rotorua for many years. We love living here with all the outdoor sporting activities. Our family has been involved with the club for some time as we have two girls swimming with the club. Emily and Lizzie inMetro Squad. Both learnt to swim at the Aquatic Centre and thoroughly enjoy being members of the club. I am keen to lend support to the club and provide as much help as I can. 




Bruce Rankin (1st Term). This is my first term on the Board. i currently run a local buisness tht employs 20 people and have done so for the past 5 years. Prior to this I have spent 15 years in the finance industry. I came from a large swimming familythat has competed at all levels of New Zealand swimming. I still swim 3+ times a week and compete in Masters events when I get the opportunity - even winning my age group at the 2018 North Island Short Course camps> I have a son swimming who has recently moved to Competitive swimming. Initially I want to understand the Board and Club and then use my skills where needed to help strengthen the club for all our members.



Amanda Gordon: (1st Term) I have two boys, Sam & Noah with Swim Rotorua. I have been on the sidelines for the last few years and thought it was time to stepup and help. I am a local lawyer and have lived in Rotorua since 1997. I think swimming and Swim Clubs are a vital part of the community.


Ann Mason: (1st term) I was previously employed as the Public Operations Manager for a not for profit Science Centre in Christchurch. I have served on Board of Birthright, Christchurch and served as Chair of our local Preschool too. I have experience in Strategic Plannin, Funding and Funding applications. I feel that my skills and experience would be an asset to Swim Rotorua and its future. I have a daughter swimming with the Junior Academy.
