About Make a Splash

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.

Through Make a Splash, the USA Swimming Foundation partners with learn-to-swim providers and water safety advocates across the country to provide swimming lessons and educate children and their families on the importance of learning how to swim.

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, more than 2 million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through the USA Swimming Foundation Make a Splash Local Partner network, comprised of more than 600 qualified lesson providers across the nation. To learn more, visit the USA Swimming Foundation's Make A Splash site

The Prince George's Department of Parks and Recreation is a Make A Splash Local partner and offers free swim lessons and water safety programs during the Summer at various M-NCPPC aquatic facilities and to various 2nd grade classes in the Prince George's Public Schools.

Pool Safely Pledge Information

We are pleased to announce today’s launch of the Pool Safely Pledge, an online commitment to water safety that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is asking every adult and child in America to take this summer.

The Pledge is designed to commit the American public to being safe in and around the water this year. It will serve as a visual reminder of the safety steps they should be using with their families every time they are near the water, as well as an opportunity for them to pass on these messages to their friends and family via social media.

Make sure your family stays safe this year. And, be sure to take the Pool Safely Pledge!

*The M-NCPPC Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George's County encourages and supports the participation of individuals with disabilities. Register at least a minimum of two weeks in advance of the program start date to request and receive a disability accommodation.
