It is with the greatest of pleasure that I welcome you to the FINA Development Centre, Kazan, one of four such centres around the world operating within the framework of various FINA Scholarship and Development Programmes.
Captain Husain Al-Musallam
Whether you are an athlete, a coach or an official, whether you aspire to join the elite of our sport or you're already among them, our development centres have something to offer you. Scholarships, clinics, training camps, schools and coaches' certification programmes, seminars and other events: you'll find them all here, underlining FINA's continuing commitment to the development of aquatic sports worldwide.
The FINA Development Centre, Kazan began operations in 2019, a priceless legacy of the 16th FINA World Championships and Masters Championships which were held in Kazan in 2015.
However, those championships and this centre are just two of the products of a long and fruitful collaboration between FINA and Russia. In 2025, Russia will once again become the centre of attention as the world's best athletes and their fans meet to celebrate the 21st FINA World Championships and the 21st FINA World Masters Championships, here in the Republic of Tatarstan.
Long may this special relationship flourish, and long may the FINA Development Centre, Kazan continue its work of raising standards in aquatics in Russia and across the world!
