The Welsh Association of Sub Aqua Clubs (Welsh: Cwmdeithas Clybiau Tanddwr Cymru) (WASAC) is the national governing body (NGB) for Sub Aqua in Wales. Sub Aqua is a broad term encompassing both recreational underwater activities such as recreational diving and snorkelling, and competitive underwater activities including underwater sports as underwater hockey[1][2]

The WASAC is one of 4 NGBs representing Sub Aqua in the constituent countries of the United Kingdom. The others are the British Sub Aqua Club (England), the Northern Ireland Federation of Sub-Aqua Clubs (Northern Ireland) and the Scottish Sub Aqua Club (Scotland), with the British Sub Aqua Club being the NGB for the United Kingdom; a role it has held since 1954.[1][3]

Although WASAC is responsible for underwater hockey (also known as Octopush), training and management of Wales national squads is controlled by Hoci Tanddwr Cymreig Underwater Hockey Wales (HTC UHW).[4]

The WASAC is based at Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen, Neath Port Talbot.[5]
