The organization ratified on 2 September 2017 was backed by a unanimous vote of approval from more than 650 coaches in September 2015 at the American Swimming Coaches Association and World Swimming Coaches Association annual meeting. Its purpose is to offer an alternative governing body to FINA, an IOC-recognized governing body of aquatic sports since 1908. It works together with the Professional Swimmers Association and the World Open Water Swimming Association.
