The World of Olympic Sport
WSA is an idea born in Sept. of 2015 to address the failure of the existing world bodies to fairly, openly, and honestly administer our sport and provide for our athletes. After 11 decades of failure to become athlete-centered, the WSCA Coaches decided that it was time to develop something NEW.
The World Swimming Association’s purpose is to provide an organization for swimming that is
Athlete Centered, Administratively Transparent, and Professionally Managed.
The WSA is a sub-organization of the WSCA. For coaches who want to develop a swimming league, a non-FINA affiliated federation, or a competitive structure for schools or clubs, the WSA is available. The Constitutional Convention was in Washington, DC, in September 2017. Unlike existing organizations that tend to develop self-perpetuating permanent committees, the WSA operates with “Task Forces,” comprised of appropriate members, then disbanded when they complete their tasks.
The functions of the WSA, as decided at its convention, will be implemented by Professional Staff, with experience in competitive swimming.
