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.
The City of Spokane Parks & Recreation Department has partnered with the USA Swimming Foundation Make a Splash program and the Spokane Parks Foundation to provide free swim lessons to youth! These lessons are available at A.M. Cannon, Comstock, Hillyard, Liberty, and Shadle Aquatic Centers for the 2018 Summer Season. To obtain a sponsored swim lesson, follow the steps below:

Make a Splash In a Kid's Life is a program of the Spokane Parks Foundation that is focused 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 has been able to distribute over 1,000 swim passes to local youth and has ensured that kids have the required swimsuits. Donations have also been allocated towards scholarships for swim lessons which are invaluable to a child's development. However, there are still more kids in need of assistance and donations are greatly appreciated. Your donation makes a positive change directly in our own community and in developing the youth of our city.
