• A celebration to recognize diverse individuals and organizations working to create solutions towards the mission of increasing water safety education and safe participation in aquatic physical activities in BIPOC communities through our Excellence In Aquatics Awards Night
• Create new paradigms and learn about the historical effect of policies and practices which impact the present-day aquatic disparities
• Engage with our leadership of Board Members, Directors and 7 Aquatic Council Chairs (Triathlon, Scuba, Swimming, Veterans, Rowing, Caribbean, and HBCU/HIS) to understanding the needs, motivations, interests, and challenges in various aquatic areas.
These are only a few of the many opportunities available through our convention.

We look forward to seeing you in February. Make sure to register today! Together with your help, we can approach water safety and drowning prevention through the lens of social justice, education, and public health to address the impacts race, socioeconomic circumstances, and cultural stereotyping effect the communities in which we serve.
