Palestinian Swimming Federation and Aquatic Sports
The Palestinian Swimming Federation and Aquatic Sports is a local body of aquatic sports. It was established 1993 in Jerusalem.
The goals of the Federation are to teach people how to swim and how to save lives. We do this by spreading information and organizing tutorials about lifesaving and drowning prevention. We promote public awareness on this topic. Public and professional patrols are organized and disaster risk assessments are carried out. We plan water safety and analyse and report drowning statistics. We want to encourage Palestinians to swim and teach them about safety in the water.
The Palestinian Federation was Associate Member of the ILS from 2004 to 2014.
