The goal of the City of Spokane and the Spokane Parks Foundation is to offer free opportunities for participants to learn how to be safe in and around the water, and to teach, develop, and improve swimming skills. Preregistration is required with a maximum of 15 participants per session. Space will fill up quickly, so be sure to register early.
No scholarships available at this time. Thanks to all who took advantage of our swim lesson scholarships in 2022 and special THANK YOU to Spokane Parks Foundation for offering these scholarships!
Make a Splash In a Kid's Life is a program of the Spokane Parks Foundation that focuses on providing quality recreational activities for local low-income families. Summer swimming is a great way to keep kids off of the street and involved in healthy activity. Through generous donations from the community, the Make a Splash In a Kid's Life program is able to provide free swimming opportunities throughout Spokane County. Additionally, and with generous community donations, the foundation ensures kids have the required swim attire to enjoy our beautiful aquatic facilities. Each year, several thousand dollars are allocated for scholarships for life-saving swim lessons which are invaluable to a child's development and safety. Donations toward the program are always appreciated! Each contribution benefits kids in our local community.
