USA Swimming Foundation
USA Triathlon and the USA Swimming Foundation have partnered in launching a joint campaign to provide all USA Triathlon Splash and Dash and Youth Aquathlon participants, and their families, with an incentive and opportunity to participate in quality, affordable and easily accessible learn-to-swim programs.
Swimming is a lifesaving skill as well as an excellent source of exercise, one which opens the door to various recreational activities, such as triathlon, among other water-related sports, providing a lifetime of opportunity.
With one of the main components of a Splash and Dash event being the swim, it is with the utmost importance that all participants are educated on proper swim techniques and other aquatic skills. For those who are unable to participate in the USA Triathlon Splash and Dash event due to their inability to swim, families can find proper learn-to-swim programs via the USA Swimming Foundation’s network of Make a Splash Local Partners.

Further, the empowerment it will give to the youth athletes will enable to them to not only gain self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment, but also the drive to compete in swimming, running, cycling, and other multisport events.
