Make a Splash Local Partner
Head Coach/ Aquatics Director, Dan Flack and Head Age Group Coach/ Swim School Director, Brian Gill are pleased to announce that the Baylor Swim Club has partnered with the USA Swimming Foundations’ Make A Splash Program.
The Baylor Swim Club provides scholarships to those that cannot afford to pay for swimming lessons as part of the Make A Splash Local Partner program. The Baylor Swim Club is currently just one of three organizations associated with the program in the state of Tennessee.
“The Bayor Swim Club is delighted to partner with the United States Swimming Foundation in this program. Make a Splash is just another opportunity to promote the benefits of the sport of swimming and water safety to a wider group of people in the greater Tennessee Valley area,” said Head Coach Dan Flack.
The Make A Splash Program
Make a Splash is a national child-focused water safety initiative created by the USA Swimming Foundation.
It works by aligning the nation’s top learn-to-swim resources in an effort to save lives. Make a Splash educates parents through a national awareness campaign, saves lives by joining forces with grassroots learn-to-swim programs and reaches thousands of children through wide-reaching in-school materials.
The Local Partner program provides the opportunity to make a difference in the community using the power of Make a Splash. The Make a Splash campaign will help locally to:
- Expand awareness about the importance of water safety and the need to learn to swim
- Make learn-to-swim program services become more visible in your community.
The Baylor Swim Club donates a total of two scholarships per session, and are on a first come first serve basis. A waiting list will be created if the class you choose is full.
Proof of Eligibility: Make-A-Splash is a program offering swim lessons free of charge or half-off as a service to those who would otherwise not be able to attend. In order to qualify for this swim program, USA Swimming requires that applicants must be approved by the public school system to receive free/reduced-price lunches or meet those criteria. A copy of the school’s letter provided to families who qualify must be included with this application.
