Get Involved

There are numerous ways for you to participate in Diversity in Aquatics to reduce drowning deaths and encourage healthy lifestyles through aquatic activities. 


International Water Safety Day

May 15th is a day where people from all over the world get together to spread awareness about drowning prevention and water safety opportunities. You can Host and Event, Get Trained in Water Safety, or Donate to the International Water Safety Foundation. 

Sign Up for a DIA Aquatics Council

Each sports and interest council is supported by the overall organization to provide guidance, best practices, and has the power of the Diversity in Aquatics network behind it. Whether you are a past, present or future aquatic professional, these councils are created to share best practices and cultivate genuine opportunities to engage.

Host a Tread-A-Thon

The International Water Safety Foundation's Tread-A-Thin is a way for Individuals, teams, and organizations to raise awareness by setting a date to tread water. Participants ask for donations from family, friends, neighbors, and businesses while making them aware of the toll drowning takes on children and families globally. Donors make a flat donation in support of preventing drownings online on personalized donation pages.
