Kaede is a member of the university swim club and has, thus far, broken multiple records in freestyle, including the national record.

As of the end of Free!–the Final Stroke– the second volume, Nagisa Hazuki, along with four of the graduating members of Samezuka Swimming Club, are attending Naribusawa and have joined the university's swim club. Kaede subsequently appears to have become somewhat of a mentor to Nagisa, admiring the younger swimmers attitude.*[1]
