June 21, 2014. From our Local Partner – USA Swimming Foundation – Make a Splash Initiative ! “WHY MAKE A SPLASH?. 70% of African American children cannot swim. 60% of Latino children cannot swim. 40% of Caucasian children cannot swim. Ten people drown each day in the U.S. Drowning is the 2nd leading cause of childhood unintentional death for children under the age of 14.Participation in formal swimming lessons could reduce the likelihood of childhood drowning by 88%.”
There are many wonderful activities to involve your children in. But giving them Swim Lessons, whether at Splash! Swim & Wellness or another reputable swim instruction facility, will provide them a skill that could actually save their life! It’s a great Investment!
