The Hunterdon County YMCA has partnered with Make a Splash, a national child-focused water safety initiative created by the USA Swimming Foundation. Launched in 2007, Make a Splash works by aligning the nation’s top learn-to-swim resources in an effort to save lives. Make a Splash educates parents through a national awareness campaign and saves lives by teaching at risk children basic swimming and water safety skills.

By partnering with the USA Swimming Foundation in activating the Make a Splash initiative, the Y will be able to deliver programs designed to:

  • Reduce drowning
  • Increase participation of underrepresented populations in the sport of swimming
  • Expand the use of swimming as a means to lifetime health and fitness

About Make A Splash

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 2 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 600 qualified lesson providers across the nation.
