Our Programmes

Grassroots (Aged between 8-12 only)

The grassroots level program aims to introduce the differently abled and the underprivileged to the sport and develop the swimmers to achieve excellence in the future. We aim to take them to state championship level by the end of the program.

Advance (No Age limit)

Advance program is for sports persons who are hanging in the balance between Grassroots and elite level where they are already state medalist or a national level participant. This program will not be giving complete sponsorship to the swimmers but give them highest quality training to break into the international league.

Stand-up (16 to Open)

Stand-up program is parallel to grassroots but for people aged above 16 years. The candidates will be hand picked to teach them the sport and the necessary skills to achieve success and prolong career in sports. We will educate them about the sport and get them certified in their respective sport and appoint them as coaches, support staff, sports administrator or any other job in sports to help para sports develop in the country and have a secured life. Target - Create international level athletes from national/state level.
