Coach Mentoring Program
Coaches, Virginia Swimming has been approved by USA Swimming for funding to sponsor a Coach Mentoring Program. The program is setup for coaches to get help in any area they may need.
The mission of Virginia Swimming’s Learn-to-Swim program is to raise awareness of the need and to provide the motivation systems, and tools to waterproof our community so that all children have basic swimming skills and are safe around the water. Virginia Swimming will invest in grants for learn-to-swim and water safety programs geared towards young people who otherwise would not have the opportunity to participate in such programs. Make a Splash Local Partner Programs and USA Swimming-registered VSI swim teams are eligible to apply for grant funding.
