Make a Difference
Thank you so much to all of our swimmers that volunteer for Greenville Splash! Your efforts help to make our community safer in the water and provide fitness and competition activities for swimmers. We hosted the Dixie Zone LCM Championships where swimmers came to compete all from all over the southeast. We have taught over 215 adults how to swim! It's a great feeling of giving back to our fellow swimmers around the country. The Upstate Splash has raised money to provide swim lessons for over 2,000 children!
