2015 Make a Splash Tour Presented by Phillips 66

The USA Swimming Foundation seeks to raise national awareness about the importance of learning to swim

through its Make a Splash initiative. Each year, the Foundation embarks on a national awareness tour which visits cities across America to spread the lifesaving message of learn-to-swim. This year marks the

MAS Tour Logo (Med)seventh year of the Make a Splash Tour presented by Phillips 66, which has visited more than 35 cities nationwide. The tour has received extensive national media exposure in outlets such as Sports Illustrated, the Today Show, HBO Real Sports and more. 


Throughout the month of June the Foundation, Phillips 66, and USA Swimming Foundation ambassadors Cullen Jones, Conor Dwyer, Jessica Hardy, Kevin Cordes and Rowdy Gaines will visit four cities across the country to promote the importance of learning to swim to families nationwide. Our ambassadors' commitment to the tour and its lifesaving message helps enhance publicity and expand the reach of the Make a Splash campaign to a wide audience of parents, learn-to-swim providers, educators, and community leaders. The 2015 tour consists of visits to the following cities:

  • Freeport, TX: June 4, 2015 with Olympians Cullen Jones and Rowdy Gaines
  • Alliance, LA: June 5, 2015 with Olympians Jessica Hardy and Rowdy Gaines
  • Chicago, IL: June 12-14, 2015 with Olympians Cullen Jones, Conor Dwyer, Jessica Hardy, Rowdy Gaines and National and World Champion, Kevin Cordes
