The Northern Zone will have a representative in the Botswana Swimming Sport Association (BSSA) executive committee.

The new changes wIll be implemented next year when the BSSA constitution is amended.

The motion was adopted during an elective general meeting that was held over the weekend in Gaborone. The mover of the motion, Gondo Gondo told Sport Monitor after the meeting that swimming is mainly centered in the Southern part of the country. “In the past five years, swimming has grown drastically in the South and about four clubs have been established. In the North, clubs that used to affiliate to BSSA have died and only one is operating. The BSSA executive committee had no idea what was happening in the North. With this motion, it means the leadership would be kept abreast with everything that is happening in the North, hence the need for the change,” he said.   Gondo also said there are many swimmers in schools, but nothing is happening at club level. He explained that any National Sport Association (NSA) governing body has a representative from the North who updates them about the region. He said the previous BSSA leadership had no idea of what was happening in the North.
