Black Swimming Initiative

Mission

Expand meaningful participation in water sports by providing a strong sense of belonging for Black athletes of all backgrounds, abilities, and lifestyles by supporting safe and accessible water safety and swimming instruction.


Vision

We envision a world where racism is eliminated from the aquatics and water sports; where individuals can access bodies of water with confidence in themselves and be welcomed by all.


By 2024 we want a Black graduating class of US Masters Certified Coaches actively teaching at local pools.
