Splash Pals is dedicated to implementing adapted aquatics programs that aim to improve the quality of life for college students. This is achieved through providing a supportive environment for our chapter affiliates to host adapted aquatics pool sessions that create meaningful experiences and an environment for chapter members to develop themselves professionally.
As a new student member, you will be partnered in a small group with a veteran student and will have the opportunity to engage with the children while learning about various disabilities. Typically, the children have disabilities like autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, attention deficit disorder, traumatic brain injury, genetic disorders, amputations, and many others. As a student member, you will also have the opportunity to network with other like-minded students and any professionals like physicians, therapists, special needs specialists, and others that your chapter brings in for aided instruction. You will also have the opportunity to log your time spent engaging in your chapter’s events as volunteer hours with your university.
P.S. – we strongly encourage logging your hours with your university as most offer special recognition at graduation and even awards for student volunteerism!
