Aulea Swim Club is the Pride of Oahu’s Windward Side and a USA Swimming Club. Aulea has 180+ swimmers (including our swim team and swim school) and is among the top swim clubs in Hawaii.
Aulea Swim Club Mission Statement: The Hawaiian translation of “Aulea” means “swimming together harmoniously.” As a TEAM we develop champions in the pool and in life by creating a positive environment that inspires the dreams of swimmers at all competitive levels – beginners, Olympians and everyone in between. Aulea’s competitive approach is complemented by its fun, community-oriented environment.

Important Policies & Procedures: Please be sure to read the Aulea Handbook (pull-down below this one) for important policies, procedures and information.
Groups/Coaches: We have six swim groups: Bronze (our novice group), Silver, Gold, Platinum, Junior, Senior and Senior Elite. Swimmers will be placed into the appropriate group based on their ability/age and moved up according to Aulea’s guidelines. Aulea is proud to have an outstanding staff of experienced coaches. To read bios on our coaches, please click the Coaches link on the right of the home page.
Swim School: Aulea is proud to have a Swim School for kids who are new to competitive swimming. Please refer to the Swim School link for more information.
Practices: The team practices at Kailua District Park in Kailua at 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The end time will vary depending on the swim group (the Bronze group will end at 6:00, Senior group at 7:00, and other groups somewhere in between).
Meets: Aulea is a competitive swim club and swimmers are strongly encouraged – or in many cases, expected to swim in meets (the number and specific meets will depend on their times and swim group). Meet info can be found in the Events, Calendar or Standards & Meet Info link.
Volunteers: Practice, meets and special events/activities (which are critical to helping form friendships and bonds and keep kids interested in swimming) are not possible without parent volunteers. Aulea expects parents to volunteer in some way for at least 25 hours per year.
Visiting Swimmers: Swimmers who are members of USA Swimming and visiting Oahu for vacation or extended time are welcome to swim with our club. Please email [email protected] to make arrangements.
