Swim gear needed for CIASA Swim Development Initiative

The Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association is appealing to all clubs and members of the public for support with swimming gear as a part of their Swim Development Initiative.

Grown out of the Learn to Swim Initiative, which encourages all Grade 2 children to swim and be water safe. The Swim Development Initiative is designed to help those who are struggling to afford swim gear, but to jump in the pool.

Technical Director Bailey Weathers says all kids eventually grow out of their equipment, so why not pass it on to those who need it.

“To give children that want to be in competitive swimming the equipment they need to get started. We’ve realized as children get older, that are already swimming will have equipment that they don’t need anymore, whether it is suits or caps and googles. One of our families came up with this idea and I think its going to kick off for us and it will give kids, children a lot of opportunities to get involved with swimming and be apart of swimming.”

The committee will take anything swim related from goggles to swimsuits to pool noodles.
