Progression Pathway

By providing more people with foundation skills at the base of the pyramid, more people in turn will potentially go on to recreational swimming and water-based activities, which will potentially lead to developing greater interest in competitive swimming and water-based activities.

Swim For Safety

Swim for Safety is a 'learn to swim' program for developing individuals from non-swimmers to basic swimmers with a focus on water safety.

Increasing the swimming capability of individuals is a fundamental need for preventing drowning death and injury in Bahrain.
