Written by GASA on January 16, 2018
The Grenada Amateur Swimming Association (GASA) will send a nine‐member team to compete in the inaugural 2018 Union Americana De Natacion (UANA) Swimming Cup in Coral Springs Florida at the Coral Springs Aquatic Complex from January 19 – 21, 2018.
Although the meet is hosted in the United States it is designed for athletes from Central America, South America and the Caribbean that are in UANA Zones 1 and 2. As a result of this criterion no American or Canadian swimmers have been invited to participate in this meet.
The meet includes 3 age groups for swimmers aged 11-12, 13-14, and 15-17. Swimmers will compete in 5 – 7 races each in the freestyle, butterfly, breaststroke, backstroke and IM at various distances. There will be only timed finals for the listed events.
The team will be led by former swimmer, Coach Damique Walters who is currently pursuing studies at the University of the West Indies specializing in Sports Education.
