3 min read

FirstPoint USA, the world’s leading sports scholarship agency, are set to further expand their roster of swimming talent in the Gulf region with the announcement of an exciting new partnership with Elite Swim Team Kuwait.

Established in 2005. Elite Swim Team Kuwait have been at the forefront of aquatic excellence in the country, offering a wide range of programs to develop and support athletes at all levels of swimming. From their renowned ‘Learn to Swim’ program through to top-tier coaching for international swimmers, they have ascended to become Kuwait’s premier team and rank among the GCC region’s finest.

Aquatics has developed as one of FirstPoint USA’s core sports, and the company became a partner of the Middle East Junior Open earlier this year through its involvement with Hamilton Aquatics in Dubai, as well as a sponsorship with Sheffield Diving, one of the UK’s premier aquatics clubs.

“Our partnership with Elite Swim Kuwait provides a fantastic platform for FirstPoint USA to further raise our profile in swimming, and provide our support services for aspiring young male and female swimmers from within the program who are seeking scholarship opportunities in the States.

“Collegiate swimmers benefit from some of the best facilities and coaches in the world, and the NCAA circuit is very much a ‘who’s who’ of the sport. We are delighted to be working with the coaches at Elite Swim Team Kuwait to extend their athlete support pathway into the US and we’re looking forward to helping prospective student-athletes who want to pursue that journey.” said Andrew Kean, FirstPoint USA’s CEO and Founder.

Swimming is one of the major collegiate sports in the US, boasting Olympic and World champions across some of the leading universities.

Mishari Razouki, CEO of Elite Swim Team Kuwait, added: “The partnership with FirstPoint USA is an exciting step for us and we continue our pursuit of redefining aquatic excellence, and providing opportunities for our swimmers to aim for the highest summits of achievement.”

“Competing in the US is definitely a goal for many of our leading athletes, and tapping into FirstPoint’s expertise and network, with their vast experience of collegiate sport, will be of huge value to our team and the families we work with."

The partnership announcement coincides with FirstPoint USA’s current schedule of events in the GCC region, with Golf Showcase taking place at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, in addition to soccer, rugby and basketball assessment trials on both Dubai and Abu Dhabi this month.
