LAPS chosen to "Make a Splash"


"The USA Swimming Foundation raises funds to support programs that save lives and
build champions - in the pool and in life."

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. 

We're so excited to announce that LAPS was chosen as a 2017 recipient of the USA Swimming Foundation Make a Splash Local Partner Grant! There were nearly 200 applications from various learn-to-swim programs throughout the country, yet the Foundation awarded grants to 71 programs including LAPS.

Partnering with an organization like USA Swimming makes LAPS part of a bigger cause. As a result, we plan to "make a splash" here in the Lowcountry!
