Auckland Freediving Club are proud to host the Freediving New Zealand Pool Nationals at the Sir Owen G. Glenn National Aquatic Centre, AUT Millennium, Auckland.

The competition will comprise three sessions over three days: Friday 13 September Statics (STA), Saturday 14 September morning Dynamic with Fin (DYN) in the 50m Main Pool, Sunday 15 morning will be Dynamic No Fins (DNF) in the 25m Main Pool.

There will be a recreation grade available for those new to competitive freediving. Divers in the recreation grade will compete in the same disciplines, but with relaxed rules and against other recreation grade divers. These dives will not be eligible for international ranking, but will appear on the Freediving New Zealand Recreational Grade Ranking on the Freediving New Zealand website. The competition is AIDA ranked, but it does NOT have world record status.

The Entire Competition will be on Auckland’s North Shore at:

Owen Glenn National Aquatic Centre
17 Antares Place, Mairangi Bay, Auckland, New Zealand
