Swimming is a survival skill

 (Left to right) Coenraad Dauth, Estab Santana DoNaascimento, Hesham Ndjadhi, winners of the recently held learn to swim event (Photograph contributed) Swimming is not only a sport but also a survival skill. It is no longer a luxury but a need such as being able to read and write, says Janis Stergiadis of the Dolphin Swimming Club.
Stergiadis was speaking at a gala dinner for children who participated in the club’s Learn to Swim programme.
The Learn to Swim gala was hosted from 26 to 27 October.
This is the third consecutive year which the Learn to Swim gala has been offered with growing interest from swimmers and parents.
Over the past 10 years since the club was established, more than 2000 children across all age groups have participated in the Learn to Swim programme.
Ingrid Goeieman, manager of sponsorships of First National Bank said: “We know that it is vitally important nowadays to be able to swim. We also know of many tragic accidents where children drowned and together with Stergiadis we urge parents to teach their children how to swim before installing a swimming pool at home. We look forward to many more skilled swimmers in Namibia.”
Over the past years the skills of the coaches and facilities have undergone great transformations.
“We have an indoor heated LTS pool and offer advanced swimming as well. FNB Namibia has been our partner for numerous years and they have assisted us financially but most importantly understood the need for LTS and have supported it all the way. We thank them for this and hope that our relationship will continue for many years to come,” said Stergiadis.
