Project Description

The Glenmark Aquatic Foundation was set up with an aim of creating more awareness about the sport and supporting swimming enthusiasts. During FY 2017-18, 2450+ swimmers trained and 170 medals won at domestic, national and international meets.

GAF is focused on promotion of swimming as a sport in India and aims to improve the ecosystem around it by building a core team of highly motivated experts, developing meaningful partnerships with national and international organisations and emphasising on maximising the potential in every athlete.

To achieve this objective, GAF operates in three key areas:

  1. Developing Centres of Excellence: GAF has set up a Centre of Excellence in Dharavi, Mumbai, and a state-of-the-art centre at the National Swimming Academy, Talkatora (New Delhi), in association with the Government of Maharashtra and the Sports Authority of India, respectively. Reputed international as well as Indian coaches train and mentor aspiring swimmers at these centres.
  2. Sponsorship of the Junior, Sub-Junior and Senior National Aquatic Championships: AF has entered into a long-term understanding with the Swimming Federation of India to provide better facilities to swimmers in the country. Initiatives such as live streaming have allowed the sport to grow and encouraged promising athletes to make India proud.
  3. Coach Education: GAF aims to create a Coach Education Programme to ensure that standards of coaching improve in India for the sport.
