About Us


In association with the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash, whose mission is to save lives by providing the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim, “SwimBrooklyn” is helping spread the initiative to urban youths for water safety.

If there are those who would be interested in supporting the cause, T-shirts are available for purchase at https://twelvebar.com/. All profits will be donated to the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative.

Did you know?

· Each day, 10 people drown in the United States.

· 70% of African American children, 60% of Latino children, and 40% of Caucasian children have low or no swimming ability.

· Participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the likelihood of childhood drowning by 88%.

To combat these staggering statistics, the USA Swimming Foundation partners with learn-to-swim providers across the country in an effort to provide free or reduced cost swim lessons to kids who might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn to swim.

Thanks for your support of SwimBrooklyn and the USA Swimming Foundation.
