The Dubai Sports City (DSC) Swimming Academy has reached a landmark agreement with the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) of Great Britain.
Under the terms of the new agreement, the two partners will work together to deliver swimming lessons for Dubai residents of all ages and abilities and develop pioneering coaching courses.
The first agreement of its kind in the Gulf Cooperation Council zone, the partnership will offer fully accredited coaching to Emiratis looking to take full advantage of the world-leading DSC facilities.
Jeff O'Brien, academies manager, commented: "These strategic partnerships underpin the basis of our delivery philosophy and ensure a unique experience for those within all of our coaching programs."
DSC has also this month announced that Dubai is set to become one of the world's foremost football destinations with the development of the Football Academy, which is already attracting interest from some of the world's biggest professional football teams.
