At Step Into Swim, we are on a mission to create more swimmers. Step Into Swim is an initiative of the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance dedicated to promoting water safety and making waves in drowning prevention. Since 2012, Step Into Swim has funded swimming lessons for more than 330,000 children across the country – because we believe every child deserves access to swim education. 100% of donations fund swim lessons for children in underserved communities.
