PREVENTING CHILDHOOD DROWNING

Our Mission:
Bringing Our Upstate Community Together To Save Children’s Lives

 

UPSTATE SPLASH VISION

Hosting fun charity events to make a measurable difference in childhood drowning by raising funds to provide swim lesson scholarships for at-risk youth in our surrounding Upstate communities.

OUR SAFETY PARTNERS

The Upstate Splash is proud to be partnering with organizations to help in the layers of prevention towards childhood drowning through education and raising water safety awareness.

SWIM FACILITY PARTNERS

Our swimming pool facility partners allow us to complete our mission by facilitating youth swim lessons and water safety awareness programs to prevent childhood drowning in our community.

SPONSORS & VOLUNTEERS

Without the generous support of our sponsors and volunteers, the Upstate Splash would never achieved helping over 1,800+ kids learn to swim. Thank you!

With the generosity of our community
the Upstate Splash Charity has accomplished the following:

WATER SAFETY AWARENESS

Keeping Kids Safe

Water Safety

Protect Children Around Water – All the Time! No matter where you live, or the time of year, it’s important to always watch children around water.

Learn To Swim

Give your child the chance to learn to swim. The most important reason is that swimming is the only sport which can save your child’s life.

Swimming Pool Safety

Teach children to float or swim as soon as possible. Always provide competent adult supervision when the pool is in use. No one should ever swim alone.

Natural Water Safety

It is important to wear a properly fitted, U.S. Coast Guard approved PFD (e.g. life jacket) at all times when recreating in open natural water, even when boating.

Adult Water Watcher Card

When children are swimming and there are several adults present, make sure kids are actively supervised at all times by choosing a Water Watcher. A Water Watcher is a responsible adult who agrees to watch the kids in the water without distractions and wear a Water Watcher card. After a certain amount of time (such as 15-minutes), the Water Watcher card is passed to another adult, who is responsible for the active supervision.

A child can drown in less time than it takes to set a world record.
