How We Raise Swimming Standards Globally

Internationally promoting the highest standards of swimming teaching, water safety and survival techniques.

This objective is the core of The International Federation of Swimming Teachers’ Associations (IFSTA). Since 1976, it has driven our commitment to ensuring the highest quality qualifications and swimming lessons are provided across the world.

Initially starting with just 10 member countries in 1976, we are delighted to have seen our membership grow globally with the support of 19 countries such as Australia, America, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore.
