ABU DHABI: The Abu Dhabi Swim for Life League 2023 is set to launch in April with the participation of almost 300 swimmers and coaches from academies and clubs across the Emirates.

The competition has been organized by Abu Dhabi Aquatics Club in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Sports Council and the UAE Swimming Federation, and will run until mid-December.

Abu Dhabi Swim for Life League is a series of competitions that promote swimming and water sports across various age groups, with the first event, held on April 14, targeting young swimmers aged 8 to 14.

During the event, technical workshops will be held to develop coaches’ knowledge of various water sports.

Humaid Al-Hooti, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Aquatics Club, said: “Our priority is to encourage the community to develop an interest in swimming and water sports and adopt a healthier lifestyle in general. Our strategy is aligned with the Abu Dhabi vision to be a hub for sports events and international championships, and we take this opportunity to thank all our partners and organizers for their huge contributions towards making this event a success.”

“We will partner with national and international stakeholders, to provide solid foundations that enable us to nurture a generation of water sports champions in the UAE, enabling them to pursue their dreams and increase the UAE’s presence at regional and international swimming competitions,” he said.

Abdullah Al-Wahaibi, head of the internal committee at the UAE Swimming Federation, said: “The establishment of the Abu Dhabi Aquatics Club will usher in a new era of high caliber swimming events and competitions that will be organized by the club throughout the year. Hosting events like the Swim for Life 2023 League Series — where children and teenagers get the chance to compete and improve can be a huge motivator, so we are looking forward to an exciting (event).”

Abu Dhabi Aquatics Club’s mandate includes training in swimming, diving, water polo, high diving, open water swimming, fin swimming and rescue skills.
