AQUATICS -- Swim, dive, polo, synchro
victory beyond competition
God is working in aquatics — Swimming, Diving, Water Polo, Synchro, and Open Water!
Connect with athletes and coaches as we apply biblical principles to life and integrate faith and sport.
Since 1979 Athletes in Action aquatics has sought to impact the world of competitive aquatic sports through developing athletes’ God-given potential, building Biblical character into lives, touching hearts cross-culturally, and sharing with others the life-changing message of love, hope, and forgiveness found in Jesus Christ.
Summer mission projects, international sports/mission trips, swimmers’ chapels, age-group summer swim camps, elite training camps, evangelistic swim clinics and personal discipleship are some of the ways AIA Aquatics has impacted the world of competitive swimming over the last 40+ years.
Compete and travel with us. Grow in your faith and in your confidence in sharing your faith with others.
Take your faith and sport to the next level and learn how to apply your faith to your sport.
Join fellow-swimmers and coaches for 15-20 minutes of fellowship, worship, and a short devotional at major competitions around the country.
