Establishing a new culture.
Swimming is one of the activities not just a sport that has huge potential in the country, but is still hugely underdeveloped. The sea, pools and all other water bodies are source of fear to a lot of us. There are several reasons that can be attributed to this, but we want to take up the mantle with an aim of developing swimming hugely in the Central Region and making Cape Coast the home of the finest swimmers in Ghana. We also hope to use Cape Coast as a model that diffuses a new acceptance of swimming into our culture. This we believe can have positive and measurable effects on health, economic as well as social issues of development. ANOPA in cooperation with the Sport Youth NRW from Germany has decided to take it up to help make swimming a part of our life!
