The USA Swimming Foundation launched Make a Splash in 2007 with the goal to teach every child to learn to swim.  In order to accomplish this, we hope to spread awareness of the importance to learn to swim and be safe around water to every community in the country. A network of learn-to-swim providers has been created through the Local Partner Program to help spread this awareness message and join in our mission.

The USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative also spreads the importance of water safety through the Make a Splash Tour, presented by Phillips 66. The tour was introduced in 2009 and has been hosted in 35 cities nationwide. The objective is to convey the message of water safety and education to a wide audience of parents, learn-to-swim providers, educators, community leaders, and children.

About the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative:

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 3.4 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 725 qualified lesson providers across the nation.
