SEASTARS Aquatics is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and fostering the success and growth of children who are economically, physically or mentally challenged by providing individualized attention as a part of a structured competitive swim team program.

Programs span grades 1-12, with performance-appropriate curriculum designed to teach the skills necessary to prepare swimmers for key competitions, as well as personal responsibility. Within each program, SEASTARS educates swimmers on issues such as proper nutrition, healthy lifestyles, the negative effects of drug use, as well as interacting with people who are different from them ethnically and/or neurologically. All programs are designed to keep the coach / swimmer ratio at a minimum.

SEASTARS is offered as a year round United States swim team and mentoring program. The team practices are held at The Salvation Army, North “Q” St., Pensacola and any child who can provide proof of governmental financial assistance, or proof or a neurological/physical disability is eligible to participate.
