Conduct an Ocean Swimming Competition on July 2,2017. Entries are open to both local competitors and overseas visitors.
The swim is a short 1.2K under the supervision of the Balawista Surf Lifesaving Group at Kuta Beach.
Event is run for males and females in the following age groups: Juniors (12 to 17 years), Adults (18 to 35 years) and Masters (over 35)
Money raised from entries to the event is to be used (after expenses are covered) to conduct swimming programs at local pools (thereby generating business for them) and beach locations for children from low income families.
Any money raised through sponsorships by businesses or individuals would go to BSF for the Bali Swim4Kids program.
These programs would offer children a 10-15 lesson program to develop water confidence, awareness and safety for children and an understanding of the inherent dangers of water activities.
Equipment for teaching, such as kickboards and noodles will be provided.
Each child would receive a pair of swim goggles and a t-shirt at no cost to them.
Entry to the local pool would be covered by the program and the swim teachers utilised would be paid for from the program.
As the program grows we can train local unskilled Indonesians to become Internationally recognised swim teachers, thereby giving them a skill that they can use to earn money for their families and communities
