We are excited to introduce our new diverse aquatic based program, SPLASH, at the YWCA. SPLASH includes a variety of programs including our SPLASH Swim School. This is our ability based program guided by current American Red Cross standards which focus on creating life-long aquatic habits including water safety and swimming skills. With a maximum ratio of 5:1 participants to instructor our experienced swim instructors can spend more time with each participant, creating a more individualized learning experience.

About Make a Splash

Make a Splash is the national child-focused water safety initiative of the USA Swimming Foundation, which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim. Make a Splash 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, nearly 2 million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through our Make a Splash Local Partner network, comprised of more than 600 qualified lesson providers across the nation.
