We are excited to announce the Buffalo City Swim Racers has just joined USA Swimming Foundation’s water safety initiative, Make a Splash. The USA Swimming Foundation launched Make a Splash in 2007 with the goal to teach every child to learn to swim. In order to accomplish this, we hope to spread awareness of the importance to learn to swim and be safe around water to every community in the country. A network of learn-to-swim providers has been created through the Local Partner Program to help spread this awareness message and join in our mission.
Make a Splash also spreads the importance of water safety through the Make a Splash Tour with Cullen Jones. The tour was introduced in 2009 and has been hosted in 23 cities nationwide. The objective is to convey the message of water safety and education to a wide audience of parents, learn-to-swim providers, educators, community leaders, and children.

The USA Swimming Foundation has invested millions of dollars to provide grants to qualified Local Partner learn-to-swim programs, to spread national awareness, and to bring together strategic partners to end drowning. To date, nearly 2 million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through our Make a Splash Local Partner network, comprised of more than 600 qualified lesson providers across the nation.
