Swimming Union of the Americas
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). 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 is divided into 4 Zones, each with its own body which organizes competitions. The bodies that oversees these Zones, and their approximate geographical areas, are:
- Zone 1: CONSANAT--the South American Swimming Confederation (Confederación Sudamericana de Natación).
- Zone 2: CCCAN--the Central American and Caribbean Swimming Confederation (Confederación Centroamericana y del Caribe de Natación).
- Zone 3: United States Aquatic Sports (USAS)
- Zone 4: Aquatic Federation of Canada
Member countries (with FINA abbreviations), by zone:
|3||USAS (1)||USA (USA)|
|4||AFC (1)||Canada (CAN)|
Note: Haiti (HAI) and Curacao would also be members of ASUA; however, as of September 2014 it is not (yet) listed as a CCCAN member, the regional confederation they would geographically belong to. (Curacao's predecessor, Netherlands Antilles is still listed.)
