Hello Sigma Swimming Family!
We have a very wonderful announcement to bring you all today. Sigma Swimming was chosen as one of 35 adult programs from the USA Swimming Foundation’s nationwide network of swim lesson providers to receive grant money in early 2023. The grant award will go toward Sigma Swimming’s continued efforts to provide free or reduced-cost swim lessons. The USA Swimming Foundation has awarded a total of $647,522 to programs across the country.
“We are honored to be chosen for this grant. Each year, we have worked to expand and improve our reach, curriculum, and instruction. We are honored to have been recognized and entrusted to be stewards of the USA Swimming Foundation,” Director of Sigma Swim Andrew Ha said. “The money we received will be put toward our year-end goal of graduating 200 new adults from our learn to swim program.”
Sigma Swimming is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable athletic organization that was founded in 2009 to meet the needs of 40 swimmers. After nearly 14 years of being in business, we have taught 10,000+ children and adults how to swim. We have become the swim lessons provider for the City of Fort Worth, City of Burleson, City of Cleburne, and multiple homeowners' associations. This summer, we expect to teach over 1500 children and adults how to swim.
The USA Swimming Foundation vetted more than 345 applications through a competitive annual review process and chose 69 youth and 35 adult programs to receive funding.
“The USA Swimming Foundation is thrilled to provide funding to 104 swim lesson providers across 29 states,” USA Swimming Foundation Senior Director of Development Elaine Calip said. “Over 14,000 individuals will now have the opportunity to learn the lifesaving skill of water safety across the country. We owe a tremendous thank you to our partners and donors who continue to make a difference in our mission of saving lives and building champions.”
Millions of individuals have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through the USA Swimming Foundation’s network of swim lesson providers, comprised of more than 1,500 qualified swim lesson providers across the nation. To learn more, visit www.usaswimming.org/foundation.
