The Swimming Union of the Americas is the swimming continental association for the Americas (i.e. it oversees international aquatics competition within North and South America).[1] It is commonly referred to as ASUA in English, or by its Spanish and French acronym, UANA – Unión Americana de Natación (Spanish) or Union américaine de natation (French).

ASUA was founded during the 1948 Olympics in London, UK.

ASUA is divided into 4 Zones, each with its own body which organizes competitions.[2] The bodies that oversees these Zones, and their approximate geographical areas, are:
