Iwatobi High School hosts a wide variety of club activities, both sports and culture (effectively non-sports). Students are permitted to form their own clubs as long as they can assemble four members and a faculty adviser.

Sports ClubsEdit

Swim ClubEdit

The Iwatobi Swim Club was founded by swimmers Haruka Nanase, Makoto Tachibana, and Nagisa Hazuki with Gou Matsuoka as manager and Iwatobi High School classical literature teacher Miho Amakata as faculty advisor. Rei Ryugazaki later joined as another swimmer, because the club needed four swimmers to participate in events, such as a joint practice with the Samezuka Academy swim team.[2]

Iwatobi High School would not fund the swim club until it had accomplished something, which prompted the club to train for competitions. After winning a relay and qualifying for a regional competition, the club was praised by the school and encouraged to aim for nationals.[3] At the regionals, however, the team got disqualified because Rin, a member of another swim team, took a place in the relay, which was against the rules. Were they not disqualified, they would have won the first place.[4]

The swim club, even after their amazing races during the prefecturals and regionals, did not gain any new members, making the original ones feel uneasy at the thought the club might have to close after Makoto and Haruka graduate. They are seen trying to gain new members by stripping in their swimsuits during the club introduction ceremony for the first-years[5] and winning the club-versus-club relay race held during the Iwatobi High School cultural festival.[6] Despite all their efforts, the club is still low on members. Nagisa once told Rei that they should strip naked and parade around school, which Rei declined, asking "Where did the swimsuits go?!".[7] After that, Nagisa told him they could make a club song, but when he heard that he would have to write it and sing it all by himself, Rei rejected the idea once again.[7] In the end credits, Rei and Nagisa are shown as third years performing a recruitment skit during the first-year assembly. Later at least four students join them at the pool.

The club's mascot is Iwatobi-chan (岩 (iwa) = rock, 鳶 (tonbi) = kite), a bird with a head inside of a rock.

Track ClubEdit

Members of the swim club and affiliated people:


Rei was a member before joining the Swim Club. [8] The track club did not participate in the club-versus-club relay race.

Judo ClubEdit

Though the Judo club itself was not shown in the first season of the anime, the school uses an old banner from when the Judo club went on to regionals to congratulate the Swim Club, by replacing the word Judo with Swim.[3] Later, in season two, judo club was the one of the participating clubs in the club-versus-club relay race during the Iwatobi High School cultural festival, finishing at the last place.[6]

Art club is first introduced in the second episode when Haruka, Makoto and Nagisa were trying to make a nice poster for Iwatobi Swim Club so they can find another member to join them. So far, only four members (3 second years, 1 third year) are shown to be in this club. They all wear glasses and are fascinated by Haruka's art skills. In the third episode, their poster says that "cultural clubs are hot!!" with "now" inserted hastily, followed by "we're all waiting for you!!!"

Calligraphy ClubEdit

Chigusa Hanamura is part of this club. Gou was a prospective member until the swimming club formed. Third year students retire after "the summer exhibition" in similar form to third-year sports club members retiring after their summer tournaments.

Nothing is known about the photo club beyond the poster they had on the bulletin board: "PHOTO CLUB" in English, adorned with cameras.
