Swimsports

«swimsports.ch is the competence center for all questions concerning water sports. These are based on an educational concept which has been proved notably in the training of teatchers who are specialized in helping children to feel at ease in water as well as swiming and general filtness in water.

swimsports.ch strongly support the Aqwa Itineris projet so that as many children as possible are able to swim and that anyone might have access to the benefits of water. »

« The Swiss Life-Saving Society is convinced that the Aqwa Itineris project could help improve the situation in Switzerland to make swimming education accessible to children as well as provide private swimming lessons (…).

Therefore, the SRLG/SSS can only encourage such a project and looks forward to soon seeing mobile swimming schools across Switzerland. »
