ENHANCE WATER SAFETY: Gain vital skills to
navigate pools, lakes, and oceans safely, ensuring the well-being of yourself and your loved ones. Everyone deserves the chance to feel confident and secure in the water.
ACCESSIBILITY FOR ALL: Financial barriers should never hinder the opportunity to learn a life-saving skill. By offering scholarships, we aim to provide equal access to swim classes and empower individuals and families within the BIPOC community.
In these Swim Classes we will cover
We prioritize water safety education, teaching participants about the importance of pool rules, recognizing potential hazards, and practicing safe behaviors in and around water, while also addressing specific concerns and experiences of BIPOC communities.
Health and Wellness
Through structured training sessions, participants will gradually increase their endurance and stamina, enabling them to swim longer distances with confidence and strength.
Our program aims to create a sense of belonging and empowerment among BIPOC folks by fostering a supportive community, celebrating cultural diversity, and providing positive role models who reflect our own backgrounds.
Our program focuses on teaching BIPOC folks the basic techniques of swimming, including proper breathing, floating, kicking, and arm movements, in a supportive and culturally sensitive manner.
