Our Awesome Sponsors
Want to help?
As the Board of SEASTARS Aquatics, we invite you to participate as a sponsor and help our organization grow in 2016. As a nonprofit, our goal is to provide the training necessary for children to reach their utmost potential.
Utilizing swimming as a vehicle to accomplish this goal, our programs are offered at no cost to the children or their parents. SEASTARS provides insurance on the pool deck and in the water, in addition to all expenses associated with swimming, such as suits, caps, goggles, and t-shirts. In return, each child must donate a significant portion of time each month to community service projects. By making this a requirement, we hope to teach each child the benefits of giving back to their community.
SEASTARS is the first program of its kind in the United States, and with continued support from our community it will soon be possible to reach even more children.
42% of Caucasian, 70% of African-American and 60% of Hispanic children cannot swim. Drowning is the second leading cause of child accidental death. On average nine people die from drowning in the US daily. 12 SEASTARS Swimmers donated 77 hours this summer teaching free swimming lessons to The Salvation Army Campers. There were over 336,000 USA Swimming registered athletes in 2015; SEASTARS had 120 swimmers registered in 2015. SEASTARS is composed of 28.3% African-American, 10.8% Mixed races, 1.7% Asian, and 6.7% Hispanic swimmers. According to USA Swimming statistics, SEASTARS services 26.5% MORE African-Americans, 9.2% MORE Mixed races, and 5.9% MORE Hispanics. SEASTARS is also comprised of 30% or 36 Special Needs swimmers. We are the ONLY team in the country with these demographics that offers a free program.
SEASTARS is made possible through donations from caring individuals. This community support has a positive impact on our youth. We value our relationships with each of our supporters, donors and sponsors.
