1st FINA International Clinic - Swimming for All Swimming for Life Bangkok (THA)

May 15 - 17, 2017

Description

  The meeting will launch the 1st FINA International Clinic for the Swimming for All – Swimming for Life programme and will bring together participants from 49 countries representing the five continents

   The Clinic will create unified and uniform fundamental principles. It will provide the participants with technical and practical information on the learning of swimming in different circumstances and infrastructures, to be familiar with the health and safety of participants and the organization 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.

  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. As per the World Health Organization (WHO) Global report on drowning of November 2014, 372’000 people die each year due to drowning. As the guardians of the aquatic sports, FINA could not face this reality without acting! That is why FINA has launched the Swimming for All - Swimming for Life programme.
