The main purpose of NJSSA is to unify all aquatic organizations into one cooperative, collaborative family.
The NJSSA serves our state by advocating for viable, safe conduct and enjoyment of the critical life skill of swimming.
Swimming is a life skill that everyone should learn. Our organization’s goal is to equip every NJ resident with the information and tools to help keep them and their loved ones safer in and around water.
NJSSA wants to spread our message of water safety, hope, and compassion.
We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world.
Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team will work tirelessly each day to contribute to the greater good of swimming.
Bill A616 will require school districts to provide water safety instruction as part of New Jersey’s Student Learning Standards for Comprehensive Health and Physical Education throughout a child’s educational experience, grades Kindergarten through 12.
Please join us by encouraging our NJ State Assembly Members to bring Bill A-618, forward for their vote, so that it can become part of New Jersey state law.
