Alexandria’s Department of Recreation Joins ‘Make a Splash’ Initiative

MASLogoPrimaryMedThe City of Alexandria’s Department of Recreation, Parks & Cultural Activities is excited to announce the joining of the 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.  The USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative also spreads the importance of water safety through the Make a Splash Tour, presented by Phillips 66. The tour, introduced in 2009, has been hosted in 35 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.

For additional information on this collaboration, visit USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative or call the David A. Miller, Division Chief, at 703.746.5495 (VA Relay 711).
