Make The Promise!

You're already here. Make the promise to yourself and
your family that you will learn how to swim. 

Need a little more convincing? According to a recent national study conducted by USA Swimming Foundation and the University of Memphis below are the statistics of children who can not swim by ethnicity: ​

64% of Black/African-American children can not swim 

45% of Hispanic children can not swim

40% of Caucasian children can not swim

Take The Pledge!

Making the promise doesn't stop there. Consider us your accountability partners holding you accountable to this promise. We'll do that by sending periodic emails and texts about upcoming events and reminders to keep your promise!

Example: I am learning how to swim because I want to be the first in my family to learn how to swim.
