What We Do

Swimming Simply is partnering with the Hope Floats Foundation  to provide swimming lessons scholarships for children in low-income families. Hope Floats raises money by partnering with individuals, businesses, and foundations that want to be a force for good in their communities.  Scholarships and tuition assistance is provided to children who might not otherwise be able to afford swim lessons.

Drowning Facts:

  • Drowning is the Leading Cause of Accidental Death in the U.S. for Ages 4 & Under (CDC).
  • Drowning is the 2nd Leading Cause of Accidental Death in the U.S. for Ages 14 & Under (CDC).
  • Globally, the highest drowning rates are among children 1-4 years, followed by children 5-9 years (WHO).
  • Lower socioeconomic status is associated with higher risk of drowning (WHO).
  • Black children in the U.S. drown at rates 5.5 times higher than white children (CDC).

Scientific Benefits of Swimming for Children:

  • Participation in formal swim lessons reduces risk of drowning by 88%! (NIH)
  • Children who learn to swim at a young age, not only can save their own life, but reach developmental milestones earlier than their non-swimming peers. According to Griffith University research (2013), participation in swim lessons at an early age boosts the development of the Whole Child and they measure up to:
    • 20 months ahead in understanding directions
    • 17 months ahead in story recall
    • 10 months ahead in cognitive skills
    • 7 months ahead in fine motor skills
