LifeWaters recognizes the selfless sacrifice of our First Responders. LifeWaters is proud to announce that we are building our initial First Responder team . This team will include:
- First responders who are scuba certified and want to become adaptive dive buddies through the SDI Scubility Dive program.
- First responders who have acquired a mobility impairment and want to learn to dive.
We encourage friends and family to certify as well. This participation can be essential to the therapy of the adaptive diver. LifeWaters participants learn more than just how to dive. They gain confidence in their abilities, learn to problem solve adaptive solutions, and meet other people with mobility impairments. Joining LifeWaters provides a sense of freedom and comfort for many families on their first trips, national and international. Through these trips, families gain the confidence to travel on their own!
Kevin, a Lifewaters adaptive diver, said “LifeWaters has a unique perspective on
disabilities. As opposed to traditional medical process, they put the primary focus on
what I “can” do, not what I can’t do. They evaluated me appropriately, designed a
program to become and open water certified, and pushed me to achieve it. LifeWaters
is a culture and a family. Everyone genuinely cares about everyone. For any individual
with a disability who is wondering, “I wonder if I can do that?” the answer is very simple.
Reach out to LifeWaters and ask.”
