Welcome to CIAF
Kia orana and Welcome to the website of the Cook Islands Aquatics Federation (CIAF). Cook Islands Aquatics Federation is the national sporting organisation which is responsible for the promotion and development of swimming in the Cook Islands at all levels. CIAF became a member of FINA, the international federation for swimming, in 2007. CIAF is also a member of the Oceania Swimming Association.
Although, Cook Islanders have a natural affiliation with the water, swimming is quite a new sport and CIAF aim to establish swimming and water safety as a compulsory part of education in the schools and to teach all Cook Islanders both young and old through increased participation.
