1st Online CMAS World Finswimming Trainers CongressFinswimming 30.09.2020
Dear Officials, Coaches, Athletes,
As part of our collective effort to continue upgrading and developing the sport of Finswimming, we believe that the role of the coaches is truly important and multidimensional, as it requires a high level of competence and knowledge.
Amongst our future plans is the implementation of the “CMAS World Finswimming Training Congress Level 1,” designed to improve the athletes’ performance, as well as to provide the Finswimming trainers with the appropriate certification – Diploma CMAS LEVEL 1. By successfully implementing the plan, we hope to encourage more countries to join Finswimming, while also offering professional coaching opportunities to our athletes.
I warmly welcome this effort and I am looking forward to seeing you at the “CMAS World Finswimming Training Congress Level 1”.
Dear Sport Friends,
We have the honor to announce that Greece is entrusted by the World Underwater Federation (CMAS) to hold the 1st Online World Finswimming Trainers Congress in collaboration with the School of the Physical Education and Sports of the National Kapodistrian University of Athens. This is an important athletic event for the Hellenic Swimming Federation & the development of Finswimming, as well.
World Underwater Federation (CMAS) has entrusted Hellenic Swimming Federation to design and implement this Congress & this is a reward because of its leading role in Aquatics and Finswimming especially.
Ιn order for CMAS to take the decision to entrust us, considered the previous two (2) Finswimming Coaches School, held with great success, by the General Secretariat of Sports and organized by the Hellenic Swimming Federation and this is also a guarantee.
On the occasion I would like to remind you that since 2010 our country has successfully undertook major Finswimming championships. In 2014 the CMAS World Junior Finswimming Championships in Chania, in 2016 the CMAS World Finswimming Championships in Volos and in 2019 the CMAS European Finswimming Championships in Ioannina.
I wish success for the organization of this Congress and this a further step for the development of the spectacular sport of Finswimming worldwide.
Hellenic Swimming Federation President
