It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make sure AFA is reaching out to as many communities as it can so folks everywhere have access to our accessible aquatic opportunities. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.

About Us

Our mission is to work with existing community groups/organizations to design and provide accessible aquatic exercise opportunities for people with disabilities/injuries who may not be able to access regular aquatic programs. We believe that physical fitness and social participation through aquatic exercises are things that should be enjoyed by everyone.

A dream team to make aquatic fun accessible!
