The month of April has been declared “Adult Learn-to-Swim Month” by the Swimming Saves Lives Foundation, the charitable arm of U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS). According to the Centers for Disease Control, 37% of adults cannot swim the length of a 25 yard pool and could not swim well enough to save their own lives. The foundation’s goal with this initiative is to reverse that trend. In support of this national effort, Governor Pence has proclaimed April 1 -7 as Adult Learn-to-Swim Week. The proclamation is attached. Indy Aquatic Masters, a local USMS-registered Masters swim program, is offering free swim lessons to adults during the month of April.
