The Italian Swimming Federation, published on Saturday, April 25th, a press release announcing important measures for its affiliated sports clubs.

The Federation has launched a plan to support clubs seriously affected by the crisis following the coronavirus pandemic. The plan is worth 4 million Euros, or approximately 4.380 million U.S. Dollars.

The measures are the result of a complete review of activities and cost containment.

“These exceptional measures are the result of a complete overhaul of activities and cost containment, involving all federal components, in the desire to support the companies especially at the time of recovery.” Federnuoto said.

THE MEASURES

The measures taken by Federnuoto in aid of the companies are:

  • Reduction of the costs of affiliation, membership of athletes, federal swimming school licenses, and registration to the national and regional water polo championships
  • formation of a fund for athlete’s entries in swimming, open water swimming, diving, and artistic swimming.
  • reduction of 20% in the costs of existing technical collaborations which includes experts in various fields. These programs will now be reduced.
  • wage supplements

The Italian Swimming Federation will shortly communicate the details to affiliated clubs.

SWIMMING POOL REOPENING

As we reported on April 18th, FIN has appointed a committee of experts to prepare “Phase 2” of the plan to return to training for aquatic sports.

The committee now has drawn up the compendium that Federation will use to allow the reopening of swimming pools in a safe way for users. At the moment we do not yet know the guidelines that will be included in those plans.

Two weeks ago, Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte announced that the country’s quarantine measures would be extended until May 3rd.

Italian sports minister Vincenzo Spafadora believes that training and competition for the country’s elite athletes can resume on May 4th, if the country continues to practice effective social distancing.

Italy has been one of the world’s hardest-hit countries by the global coronavirus pandemic. The country has 195,351 confirmed coronavirus infections and 26,384 deaths caused by COVID-19.
