Swimfest

help prevent drownings in our community

We are thrilled to bring back Swimfest LIVE in partnership with News 4 Tucson Lifesaver in 2022. Events like these help keep our community safe and allow us to continue our commitment to educating our community about water safety. This is a FREE event for children 6 months (with their guardian) to 14 years. Participants will attend a 30-minute in-water lesson that focuses on water safety. Families can register their children for swim lessons during the event.

Drowning continues to be the leading cause of unintentional injury death among children 1-4 years and teens 15-19 years across the US. Together we can prevent this tragedy from occurring by practicing the ABC’s of water safety and teaching children how to swim.  In 2019, our community (Pima County) had the first year (on record) that no children lost their lives to drowning. This is a testament to the commitment of organizations that are committed to keeping our children safe in and around water.

This is a FREE event for children 6 months (with their guardian) to 14 years. Participants will attend a 30-minute in-water lesson that focuses on water safety. Families can register their children for swim lessons during the event.

Don’t Miss Out – register today!

Before you register, please read:

  • We ask that guardians only register each child for one event (and time) to ensure other families get the opportunity to participate as well.
  • If you are no longer able to attend after registering, please be sure to cancel your registration.
  • We will need confirmation of your attendance the week of the event. If we are not able to confirm, the participant may be disenrolled so that another person can register who is able to confirm their attendance.
