Teaching strokes is the last step in the program, preceded by healing participants' relationships with water then creating more positive experiences surrounding water and the third avenue is practice swimming.
Our programs cannot encourage the BIPOC community to swim without giving proper recognition to all the ways that water has been weaponized against us. We want to create positive change for our community. How we approach this work makes the difference on the way our community feels before, during and after the these workshops. We are approaching our swimming program differently because our community has different needs.
Our program is to support BIPOC youth and adults. Where are you at on your swimming journey? Join us Summer 2021.
Interested in this supporting this program? We are looking for BIPOC Swim/Water Instructors as well as BIPOC Lifeguards.
You don't have to be an experienced swimmer to support this program. Join us on our info night on March 8th.
