Make a Splash is the national child-focused water safety initiative of the USA
Swimming Foundation, which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America  to learn to swim. Make a Splash partners with learn-to-swim providers and water safety advocates across the country to provide swimming lessons and educate children and their families on the importance of learning how to swim. The USA Swimming Foundation has invested millions of dollars to provide grants to qualified Local Partner learn-to-swim programs, to spread national awareness, and to bring together strategic partners to end drowning.  To date, nearly 2 million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through our Make a Splash Local Partner network, comprised of more than 600 qualified lesson providers across the nation.  To learn more, visit www.makeasplash.org

Return to the surface and swim 20 yards on the back to return to the starting point with both hands holding the object and keeping the face at or near the surface so they are able to  get a breath. Candidates should not swim the distance under water. Exit the water without using a ladder or steps.
