Namibia Swimming Federation (NASFED) is the national sports body for aquatic sports codes tasked with the promotion, organization and control of aquatic sports on a national and international level.
Although operational since 1973, the federation (previously known as Namibia Amateur Swimming Union) was officially inaugurated post independence and was officially affiliated to Federation Internationale de Natation (FINA) in the beginning of 1992. NASFED is also affiliated to the Confédération Africaine de Natation (CANA) through the regional organization – CANA Zone IV. Locally, NASU is registered with the Namibian Sport Commission (NSC), and the Namibia National Olympic Committee (NNOC).
NASFED is governed by its Constitution which mandates the Council and the elected Executive Committee to make decisions on behalf of the registered members.
In close to three decades, the federation has fostered development of various aquatic disciplines. Currently, NASFED caters for close to 300 competitive swimmers registered with 8 swimming clubs whose water related activities comprise Learn to Swim programs, competitive, master and open water swimming as well as, recently re-introduced, water polo.
NASFED is a well regarded sports association that strives to uphold highest work standards, transparency and accountability at all times.
