We attract and employ coaches from around the world. They all have proven track records of both competing and coaching to national or international levels. They are here to pass on their knowledge and skills to our young swimmers. They make sure the training programme is designed and developed to ensure the swimmers have the best program to help them progress.

Victoria Hohaia


Victoria started synchronised swimming at North Harbour when she was 8 years old. She was inspired to begin synchronised swimming after watching the 2004 Olympics on TV. She loved the way the girls danced in the water and did cool tricks and thought, "this sport suits a fish like me!" What Victoria likes most about synchronised swimming is that it is competitive, artistic, challenging, involves teamwork and most of all time spent in the water. Victoria first swam for New Zealand at the 2010 Oceania Championships in Samoa. Victoria’s greatest highlights of synchronised swimming are; being a member of the NZ Aquaferns team that competed in the 2013 Barcelona Fina World Championships and the 2015 Kazan Fina World Championships.
