The Trident Swim Foundation’s Summer Swim program is a free learn-to-swim program. The program kicked off in 2018 with a mission to bring accredited swim instructors to teach children water-safety behaviors, breath-control, and how to float and move through the water. More experienced swimmers who participate in our program are taught how to swim the four competitive strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly.
Our Summer Swim program operates two 2-week sessions in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn beginning in early July and ending in early-August. Swimmers who are admitted to a session attend 30-minute lessons on weekday afternoons with highly-qualified swim instructors. Some of our swim instructors were first introduced to swimming through our swimmer scholar program, and they share their love of the water through our program.
