Greenville Splash Gives Back to Our Community
Over 40 Adults Learn to Swim!
Our Adult Learn to Swim Program Exceeds Expectations
Here are a few comments from our instructors:
"It was fun to work with adults that really wanted to learn and invest in their own skills and learn to embrace the water instead of being afraid of it. It was a privilege to be part of that."
"It was remarkable to see how these adults really wanted to learn to swim and how they all overcame their fears or struggles in one way or another! We all made a positive impact in their lives."
"I would absolutely volunteer to teach next year!"
"Great to see their joy as they accomplish something they've convinced themselves for years that they couldn't do."
Best quote from a participant on the last night: "I'm a freaking swimmer, na na na na!"
Our Awesome Volunteers!

It has been a busy time for Greenville Splash. This has been the season of giving back and fulfilling our mission and vision of making a difference in the aquatic community. Our team is so full of vibrant and spirited volunteers. We completed a successful Adult Learn to Swim Program with the help of our volunteers, the Kroc Center, and the Swimming Saves Lives Foundation.
An important part of Greenville Splash Masters is the Upstate Splash Charity. We are committed to giving back to the youth in our community by raising water safety awareness and providing swim lessons for youth. We had many Greenville Splash swimmers and friends participate and volunteer for the Upstate Splash Freestyle Jam. This event was a lot of fun with fabulous live music and food. Thank you for all the support. More children in our community will learn to swim because of your help. With wonderful swimmers and volunteers, we have a team that everyone can be proud to belong to.
Open water swimming and triathlons are in full swing for our members. We have swimmers competing and making monumental progress in their goals of staying fit and achieving their personal bests. Many of our swimmers had outstanding performances at the Low Country Splash and Mountains to Main Triathlon.
There are lots of fun opportunities for group open water swims and fun socials this summer with Greenville Splash. Check out the calendar section of the website or facebook for more information.
