The Caribbean Island Swimming Championships, or "CISCs", is a biennial aquatics championships held in even years. They are organized by CCCAN and feature age-group competition for teams from Caribbean island nations.

They have been held since 1976, and for the 2010 edition featured competition in all 5 aquatic disciplines of FINA: swimming, open water, diving, water polo, and synchronized swimming.[1]

Participating Countries[edit]

The CISCs predominantly features teams from the Caribbean, but traditionally also includes Suriname, a member of CONSANAT--South America's Swimming Confederation. Residents of the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique have also been invited to compete, despite the fact that they technically fall under the jurisdiction of the French Swimming Federation and therefore are considered part of Europe (but geographically are in the Caribbean).

Twenty (20) countries have been invited to the 2010 Championships:[1]
