In the summer of 2020, we began connecting due to COVID-19, to share resources and information, and to educate the public on the safety and health benefits of swimming.
We soon realized the strength of our collaborative voice and how we could unite to promote water safety beyond the current health crisis.
So, we got organized and leveraged our individual expertise to create a non-profit organization that promotes a common goal… water safety for all!
We are swim professionals from all across the state and represent all areas of aquatics, from coaches and instructors to aquatic venue owners, community directors, and more!
We have partnerships and consultants from national swim organizations like the Red Cross, USA Swimming, and the US Swim School Association.
Our general members are led by a Board of Directors that meet monthly to determine the objectives and actions of the organization.
Swimming is an essential skill.
Everyone should have access to water safety materials and programs.
Health benefits are realized through swimming as a lifelong activity.
Share, create and distribute educational resources that demonstrate the importance of water safety and how to be water safe.
Advocate for swim safety education requirements in schools.
Sponsor, host, and participate in events and activities that promote safety when swimming and engaging in all water activities.
Teaching your kids to swim and be water safe should be up there with teaching them to look both ways before crossing the street.
