About NSEA

We are NSEA Swim

NSEA Swim is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to improving water safety in the coastal community of Wilmington, NC. The organization began with a group of experienced coaches, talented swimmers, and dedicated parents who wanted more for our community. 

We are a team

NSEA Swim (Northside Elite Aquatics) Sea Devils is a USA Swimming-affiliated club that strives to develop a competitive swim team at both the state and national levels.

We are a foundation

Our nonprofit aims to increase water safety, prevent drowning, improve fitness, and decrease obesity. We also plan to increase multicultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity in the sport of swimming.  We offer life-saving swim lessons to prevent drowning in our coastal community.

We are the future of water safety

We offer certified training programs for lifeguards and water safety instructors.  We aim not only to improve water safety by teaching individuals to swim, but also by teaching individuals how to make everyone around them safe in the water.

Join our cause as a swimmer, a volunteer, or a lifeguard!
