Learn-to-Swim Program
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.

Virginia Swimming Safety-Gram

"Take Caution with Muscle Creams"
With the beginning of another swimming season; sore, tired muscles are to be expected. However, caution should be used in how we treat these sore muscles.  Excessive use of muscle creams containing methyl salicylate, the wintergreen-scented ingredient found in anti-inflammatory liniments such as;
Ben Gay, Icy Hot and Tiger Balm should be avoided. It was reported a couple of months ago that a 17 year old track star died from an accidental overdose of this muscle cream ingredient.  If the tired sore muscles persist, it would be best to seek treatment from a doctor rather than use these types of creams. There has to be a heightened awareness and agreement within the sports community that these products are something that needs to be used under medical supervision.
