Come join NSEA Swim this spring at the Earl Jackson pool for their inaugural Sprint for Swimclusion 5K & 1.5 Mile races! This race will help raise money for the NSEA Swim program, which is a USA Swimming affiliated club that strives to eradicate drowning through education, quality swim lessons and sharing the message of water safety with the community. 

About the Cause

NSEA Swim, also called Northside Elite Aquatics, is a USA Swimming affiliated competitive swim club that strives to eradicate drowning, the number two cause of accidental child death in our country. Although no child can ever be water safe, the goal is to make children in our community more water safe through a three-step process.

Step one is to educate the community on the importance of swim lessons. Step two is to increase participation by offering quality swim lessons to every child in the community at no cost. Step three is to align with community partners to share the message of water safety.

Changing lives, one swimmer at a time!
