The 2004 Tsunami that caused intense devastation to the coastal regions in Sri Lanka clearly revealed that many lives could have been saved if there was a more widespread ability to swim among the coastal population in Sri Lanka.

Although Sri Lanka is an island country with beautiful beaches, rivers & reservoirs more than 70 per cent of the population of Sri Lanka are unable to swim. The primary reason for this inability can be attributed to the unavailability of swimming pool facilities and safe fresh water training centers for children and the general public. Existing swimming training programs are limited to the more affluent citizenry.In this regard SWIMMING COACHES ASSOCIATION OF SRI LANKA (Registered by Ministry of sports / WP) is involved to support the development of community based swimming activities for rural children and public in Sri Lanka.
