We're Committed to NCWDOTNo Child Will Drown In Our Town Swim Clinic


Overview
 

Drowning is preventable. According to a study completed by the USA Swimming Foundation 64% of Black/African American children cannot swim and Black children are five and a half times more likely to drown than other racial groups. These daunting statistics were the driving force behind the Nile Swim Club establishing the No Child Will Drown In Our Town program. NCWDOT’s comprehensive swim lesson and water safety program focuses on safe swimming methods. During the 2021 swim season free classes and lessons were available to children residing within the boroughs that form the William Penn School District. With support from the USA Swimming Foundation and private donors the NSC achieved a major accomplishment and strategic goal bringing the gift of swimming to over 600 children. We look forward to continuing NCWDOT as a free program in the 2022 season and reaching even more children in our community.

 

Objective
 

During the 10-day swim program, NCWDOT takes an accelerated approach to swimming education by immediately immersing the children into a safe water experience. With 10-12 hours in the water and a 3:1 ratio, our goal is to endow each child with the tools to feel confident and to ultimately thrive in water. Based on the NCWDOT Swim Curriculum, our goal is to have all children complete the program on a Level 3 or above. The NCWDOT swim program is valued at $600 per child for 10-hours of swim lessons and a $200 value per child for 4 hours of water babies classes.
