In 1890 the Auckland Swimming Club initiated the move to form the National Association (now called Swimming NZ) and later, when regions, rather than clubs, were to be affiliated directly to the national body, the Auckland Swimming Association was formed in 1906.
The ASA is a foundation member of the Auckland Sports Coalition and through its executive officer benefits from representation on the Auckland Sports Coalition and also on the Auckland Sports & Recreation Reference Group (ASRRG) with the Auckland Council.
The Auckland Swimming Association currently has 15 affiliated swimming clubs with 2 further associated clubs throughout the Auckland Isthmus. The Auckland Region covers a geographic boundary north of the Tamaki Estuary and the Manukau Harbour through to boundaries south of Kaipara and Wellsford in the north.
