FINA to stage first international swim schools clinic
World swimming governing body FINA will this week be staging its first international clinic aimed at learn-to-swim professionals and organisations.
Being held in Bangkok, Thailand from Monday 15th to Wednesday 17th May, the 1st FINA International Clinic for the Swimming for All – Swimming for Life program and will be bringing together participants from 49 countries representing the five continents
According to FINA, the Clinic will aim to “create unified and uniform fundamental principles” for swim schools around the world and “will provide the participants with technical and practical information on the learning of swimming in different circumstances and infrastructures, (helping them) to become familiar with the health and safety of participants and the organisation and development of lessons.
“The aim of this clinic is not only to spread mass teaching of swimming and life-saving techniques, but also, to contribute to the integration, education and inclusion of citizens in the places where it is applied.”
FINA explain that the motivation for staging the clinic as “promoting swimming in the 21st Century, not only means producing high quality events and records but also to achieve the type of access for all the people for the recreational, healthy and appropriate practices for a healthy lifestyle; and most importantly to prevent drowning and thus save lives.”
Australian Haydn Bradshaw of Aquabliss will be among the speakers.
Speakers at the event and their presentations include:
• FINA President, Dr. Julio C. Maglione
• FINA Coaches Committee Chairman, Professor Osvaldo Arsenio - General Teaching Principles
