Learn to Swim! Why should your child learn to swim?
Because learning to swim significantly reduce the risk of drowning. Whether or not you plan to head to the pool, water is all around us - in rivers, lakes, drainage ditches, even large puddles. Equip your child with this life skill and you'll also be giving him/her access to all the fun and fitness the water can provide!
Make a Splash Initiative
About Make a Splash
The USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative is a national child-focused water safety campaign,
which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim. Through Make a Splash, the USA Swimming Foundation partners with learn-to-swim providers and water safety advocates across the country to
provide swimming lessons and educate children and their families on the importance of learning how to swim. The USA Swimming Foundation has invested millions of dollars to provide grants to qualified Local Partner learn-to-swim
programs, to spread national awareness, and to bring together strategic partners to end drowning. To date, more than 2 million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through the USA Swimming Foundation Make a Splash Local Partner network, comprised of more than 600 qualified lesson providers across the nation.
