But, not everyone has learned to swim because access to swimming is not evenly distributed. It can be incredibly challenging to find excellent, affordable swim programming that is accessible to where you live. In addition, historically racist beliefs have made swimming feel even more inaccessible to many people. And, once you don’t learn how to swim as a kid, it can get harder and harder to believe that swimming is possible. While it is widely accepted that kids need to learn how to swim, it is less well known that 44% of adults in the US admitted they would fail a basic swim test. We believe that everyone can swim, and that time and resources should be allotted to ensure that swimming is accessible to all.
Adult Programming Testimonial
"Great balance between a being a challenging and manageable workout. And I think striking that balance is so important to success with swimming, especially coming off of a long break due to the pandemic. Great Group of participants and excellent leadership and support of a highly knowledgeable, competent and motivating coach."
