Splash Pals Adapted Aquatics
Splash Pals, Inc. is a social membership and public benefit organization focused on implementing aquatic activity programs for children with various physical and developmental disabilities, and pre-professional collegiate students. In October of 2013, Splash Pals, formerly Florida Atlantic Adapted Aquatics, was founded by healthcare students at Florida Atlantic University with the intent of giving back to the community by helping children with disabilities. Every week, Splash Pals chapter affiliates host aquatic recreation pool sessions, where college students get in small groups with the children and engage them in swimming, exercise, social interaction, and play. With a focus on physical activity and social engagement, the students improve the quality of life for the children through activity and interaction, while they themselves gain meaningful experience and improve the quality of their own lives through their dedication and commitment to helping others.
