The Sunshine Swim Center scholarship program, Swim Strong Life Savers, was established in 2017 for the sole purpose of educating the Elk Grove community about water safety. 1 in 5 children under the age of 8 are involved in a drowning. Many of these drownings occur in the home. The good news is… drownings are 100% preventable.
Drownings may not result in death but can still have lasting effects on the victims and their families. Knowledge of CPR and First Aid, teaching children to learn to swim, and ensuring correctly installed barriers around pools, and back yard ponds can decrease the possibilities of drowning occurring.
Swim Strong hopes to help provide swimmers with basic and intermediate swim lessons. Our mission is to assist families who might not otherwise be able to financially afford swimming lessons for their children through our scholarship program.
Strong Strong offers scholarships each year. Applications are accepted year round. Both partial and full scholarships are awarded until the funds are all dispersed.
With the generous donations of local donors, these courses are available at a discounted price.
If you are interested in becoming a donor and supporting our scholarship program, please contact Kim Amali at 916-685-7462.
