The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals and its partners, the American Red Cross, the World Waterpark Association, and the National Recreation & Park Association will be supporting the event with educational programs, public service announcements, governmental proclamations, dealer and business promotions, and the distribution of water-safety-themed materials to the public and participating organizations.

National organizations like the USA Swimming Foundation, the International Code Council, the National Swimming Pool Foundation, and the National Drowning Prevention Alliance will be getting involved with water safety programs and activities during the event, and community organizations such as guppy swim training groups and community outreach are strongly urged to participate as well.
