The Department of Parks & Recreation has joined forces with the USA Swimming Foundation’s “Make a Splash” initiative to offer FREE Water Safety Lessons to youth in Prince George’s County this summer! The 2013 program will offer 600 spaces to participants ages 6-17 who hold FREE M-NCPPC Youth IDs. Participants will receive four FREE Water Safety Lessons designed to increase awareness of safety in, on, and around water, and to promote drowning prevention. Only in-person registration is accepted and
begins May 28, 2013 . Participants can register for only ONE course for this program for the whole summer. Participants who register for multiple courses/facilities/sessions will be WITHDRAWN.

“Make A Splash” Course Descriptions:

Beginner: Non-swimmers/non-floaters will be introduced to water safety information and swimming skills. No previous swimming ability is required.
