The CSA Mission Statement
Our mission statement has changed very little since we were founded in 1927 - it has always been and continues to be the promotion of the sport of sea swimming, with the emphasis on assisting people in their attempt to swim the English Channel in safety. We are also particularly keen to promote the sport amongst the younger generation, particularly bringing into focus the safety factors when swimming in the sea. This we believe helps towards promoting safety on our beaches today and also builds the inner confidence of our younger swimmers.
