World Swimming Association Constitutional Convention: You are invited!
by John Leonard
From 3:00-8:00 p.m. on Friday, September 1, 2017, the Constitutional Convention of the World Swimming Association (WSA) will be held at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC, USA and YOU are invited to participate! Plan now to attend this historic event, when we focus on forming a new world Swimming organization focused strictly on Swimming.
WSA will be athlete-focused, professionally-directed and transparent.
Two things will be accomplished at the Convention:
- First, we will finalize (modify and approve) the WSA Constitution which has been openly developed online for the past 18 months. (Find the most current version of the Constitution here.)
- Second, we will form working committees for each of the developmental areas that WSA will focus on, and begin planning and working on each area. The committees will be named and described next month and emailed to you.
If you are ready to change the world of Olympic Sport to the sport you fell in love with as a young person, come and join us.
It is an end to corruption, self-centered governance, and money into the pockets of those “leading” the sport. Money will flow to the athletes for a change. And we will be developing the entire world of Swimming nations, not focused on putting money into the pockets of the self-appointed “leaders” in each nation. We will also put an end to doping with High-Throughput Testing!
In addition, on Saturday, September 2, 2017 we will have a full day of your choice of coaching clinic programs for Elite Swimming (6 coaches of Rio Olympic gold medalists) or Age Group swimming. (More information to follow in coming months as the program is developed.)
Please put September 1-2 on your calendar now!
