SWISS ALUMNI SWIMMING WISHES MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A
HEALTHY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU
Masters Swimming experiences on national as well as on international level a remarkable afflux. The Masters World Championships 2017 in Budapest and the Europeans 2016 in London testify this development. Masters Swimming is, on a serious performance level, booming!
Tough this trend, it seems, hasn't yet fully arrived in Switzerland. With regards to its recognition on federations level it can be noticed that any promotion, supervision or coordination of the growing number of hard working swimmers (with valid license!) above 25 years of age in Switzerland is treated quite poorly from its governing body.
SAS attended competitions in London as well as in Budapest. And it remains our duty not only to be in the pool in 2018, but furthermore work towards a better recognition and more active support from the Swiss Swimming Federation for Masters Swimming in Switzerland.
