Special Note from Coach Leslie

We had the best time at our annual team picnic this past month! It was so fun to do an open water swim and then spend time with everyone at the picnic. Christian Passannante really out did himself as the bbq master. The brisket and ribs were amazing! The food was absolutely delicious!

We are proud to be a team that provides water safety awareness and free swim lessons to children at risk in our community. We do this by hosting the Upstate Splash Charity Open Water Swim. We are sold out for the event this year. However you can enter our virtual event! See the link below.

Keep sending us pictures. Feel free to email Coach Leslie at or give me a call if you need any help with anything: 864-283-1328.

Workouts are really fun with Greenville Splash!
