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, such as those listed below. To distinguish these providers on in the Make a Splash Network and on the National Swim Lesson Finder, the foundation designates these providers as Local Partners, 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 a USA Swimming Foundation Make a Splash Local Partner are endless! Make a Splash Local Partners are connected to our Charitable, Affiliate, and Task Force networks, and provided materials and resources to use when hosting water safety events. Additionally, the USA Swimming Foundation has an annual grant fund for Make a Splash Local Partners who provide services to children who, otherwise, would not have the opportunity to participate swimming lessons.
