About the ASA
“In 1993, the deep seeded vision of the Association hit a historic milestone when Malta was chosen to host the Games for the Small States of Europe”
The Aquatic Sports Association of Malta (ASA) saw its inception in 1925 as the Amateur Swimming Association of Malta. Throughout its many iterations, it consistently worked towards three major ambitions: to champion the progression and success of Maltese water-athletes; to engender that success through the provision of adequate facilities and organisational support; and to promote aquatics sports in Malta, endorsing the substantial benefits this brings to the greater community.
Its inauguration was a result of an accumulated desire to see Malta’s water polo team competing at the Olympics. Specifically, Lord Plumer, the Governor of Malta in the early 1920s, had planted the seed of ambition for the local team, with his sights set on the Paris Olympic Games of 1924. Although his plans were derailed when his term expired, the competitive intention for the team never lost momentum. The Association was created to bring this vision to fruition.
