About the Project

In this project, Carib Swim Team plans to acquire new swimming equipment for both existing and new members. The new equipment is essential to replace outdated gear and ensure alignment with current training methods. Specifically designated for the Learn2Swim program (swimming lessons) and the competitive team (athletes), these tools will enhance skill development and training effectiveness.Additionally, the club aims to boost its membership by initiating lifestyle and health improvement programs within the swimming pool. The objective is to encourage the community to embrace a more active lifestyle, fostering both physical and mental well-being.
