Sigma Swimming Receives 2022 Grant Funding From USA Swimming Foundation
Grant supports efforts to offer free or reduced-cost swim lessons
Fort Worth, Texas – Sigma Swimming was chosen as one of 40 adult programs from the USA Swimming Foundation’s nationwide network of swim lesson providers to receive grant money in early 2022. 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 $898,184 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 13 years of being in business, we have taught 7,814 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 250 applications through a competitive annual review process and chose 102 youth and 40 adult programs to receive funding. “It’s an incredible feeling to know that USA Swimming Foundation funding will be used to create a valuable swimming experience for thousands of people who may not have had the opportunity to learn how to swim,” Scott Usher, Director
of Development for the USA Swimming Foundation said. “We are thrilled with the depth of this year’s swim lesson provider applicant pool, and we couldn’t be prouder to support these life-saving opportunities 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 children 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 lesson providers across the nation. To learn more,
