BSP has been associated with Swimming in PNG for over 10 years. PNG Swimming Inc (PNGSI) was an integral part of supporting the development of Ryan Pini and Judith Meauri who competed in the 2012 London Olympics. BSP sponsors directly the two target squads known as BSP Kundu Gold and Kundu Silver Target Aquatic Excellence Squads.
The PNGSI/BSP National Aquatic Excellence Program is a program to recognise swimming excellence in our PNG Swimmers. The program covers swimmers from age 9 through to Open. Swimmers who achieve a qualifying standard are awarded a Silver or Gold standard level in the Junior (9-11 years), Intermediate (12-14 years) or Open levels (Kundu Target Squads).
With our support of K80,000, PNGSI works closely with Swimming NZ (SNZ), Swimming Australia Limited (SAL) and Australian Swim Coaches and Teachers Association (ASCTA) and regularly brings representatives to PNG for coaching clinics and courses and Technical official courses. In conjunction with these experienced partners the BSP Learn to Swim Program will be prioritised in other centres outside the National Capital District with Alotau and Lae community schools being targeted in the first instance.
