The sports of swimming, diving, water polo and synchronized swimming are all controlled by the Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica (ASAJ).  The main pool on the island is located at the National Stadium in Kingston’s Independence Park. 

 
Swim Jamaica, launched in January 2005, is an offshoot program of the ASAJ geared toward the teaching of swimming. Swim Jamaica focuses on three groups of learning swimmers: toddlers, children, and adults. It also offers training for individuals who wish to become swimming instructors. 
 
On the local level, competitive clubs dominate the sport of swimming. The following is a list of the swim clubs registered with the ASAJ for the 2011-2012 season:
  • Blue Marlin Swim Club
  • Blue Seals Swim Club
  • Dolphin Swim Club
  • Flying Fish Ambassadors
  • Island Waves Masters Club
  • Marlins Swim Club
  • Royal Swim Club
  • Swimaz Aquatic Swim Club
  • Swordfish Swim Club
  • Tornadoes Swim Club
  • Wahoo Swim Club
  • Y-Speedos Swim Club

‚ÄčThere are also two water polo clubs, the Jamaica Water Polo Union and the Water Warriors. And two synchronized swimming clubs, Synchro Stars and Island Aquatics Synchro Club.

 
The Jamaican national swim team competes on the international level.  The CARIFTA Swimming Meet is held annually in a different Caribbean nation and constitutes the major competitive event in the region.
