Swim Lesson Providers

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. 

The USA Swimming Foundation strongly recommends swim lesson providers who meet or exceed industry best practices. To distinguish these providers, the foundation designates these providers as part of the USA Swimming Foundation Swim Lesson Provider Network, as these swim lesson providers go above and beyond to provide a safe environment and facility by using trained and certified instructors and lifeguards, and a low student to teacher ratio.


The benefits of being in the USA Swimming Foundation's Swim Lesson Provider Network are endless! Swim Lesson Providers are connected to our Charitable, Affiliate, and Task Force networks, and provided access to discounted or free materials and resources to use when hosting water safety events. Additionally, the USA Swimming Foundation has an annual grant fund for learn-to-swim providers who offer services to children who, otherwise, would not have the opportunity to participate swimming lessons.
