There are more than 18 million swimming pools and hot tubs in the USA. Yet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than a third of American adults cannot swim the length of a pool. Every day, about 10 people die from drowning, the majority of them adults. The CDC identifies a variety of factors that can influence drowning risk, including the lack of swimming ability. Research also shows that the children of adults who don’t know how to swim are at a greater risk of not learning to swim, which increases their risk of drowning.

SSLF's purpose is raise public awareness about the problem of adult drowning, and to serve as a financial and educational resource for programs that provide adult learn-to-swim lessons. Since 2011, SSLF has awarded nearly $442,000 in grants to programs that are providing adult learn-to-swim opportunities. Thousands of adults across the country have benefited from lessons taught by our program partners, thanks to the generous contributions from USMS members and other supporters.
