Maldivian Swimming

Although swimming is a popular activity in Maldives as a mean for fitness or for survival, the number of swimmers who swim competitively is small in number. However, we at Swimming Association of Maldives is constantly trying to improve both the quality and the quantity of competitive swimming in the islands of Maldives.

History

It has been more than four decades since the first recorded swimming competition was held in Maldives. The national sports association named ‘Maldives Swimming and Watersports Association’ was first established in 1983. With the first elected executive committee, the name of the association was changed to ‘Swimming Association of Maldives’ in the year 2007. Since then, our focus has been primarily towards competitive swimming and teaching the general public basic survival swimming.
