Swim Thailand’s Mission

To instill a love and respect of water into the lives of the Thai & International community; and to enable all people in the Kingdom of Thailand to have the opportunity to learn to swim and gain water safety knowledge and confidence.

Our Vision

“To promote the highest standards in the teaching of swimming, survival techniques and other aquatic activities.”

Help change these statistics and reduce the incidence of drowning by water safety and swimming knowledge and qualifications.

Share a love of swimming and water safety with your community.

By increasing the amount of trained and qualified swimming teachers in Thailand, we create more swimming and water safety opportunities available to Thai people; thereby spreading the effectiveness of Swim Thailand’s mission to give the gift of swimming to Thailand and change the statistics on drowning of locals, expats and tourists in Thailand.
