Athletes under the Cayman Islands Aquatic Swimming Association will have extra funds to benefit from following the the annual CIASA charity Golf Tournament this past Friday (March 26)
“With the support of all the tournaments sponsors and players, over CI$11,000.00 was raised which will go towards CIASA’s many programmes which include the national development team, junior and senior national teams, artistic swimming and many more,” stated in a press release issued by CIASA.
A total of 24 teams, comprising 96 players took part in the event, including Cayman’s top golfer Andrew Jarvis. Andrew Mackay, Team Global Captive Management, CIASA treasurer and former Cayman Islands Olympic swimmer took part in the tournament.
“It was great to see such incredible support from the local community in light of the challenging year the island has faced,” Mackay stated in the release. “Once travel is possible it will be essential to get our athletes back to international competitions to continue their development; and as with all things, the ability to develop our swimmers requires a financial investment. We are incredibly grateful to all those who turned up to support CIASA and donate their money and time towards helping aquatic sports in Cayman”.
CIASA thanked it’s “prize sponsors” including CASA 43, Lloyds Smokehouse, Chef at Home, Bon Vivant, Cayman Spirits Company, International Design Group and The North Sound Golf Club and special thanks to our Putting Contest Sponsor Waystone Governance and to our Tournament Director and swim Mom Sandy Hew.
