BENEFITING: The Salvation Army Kroc Center Coeur d'Alene

ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION

EVENT: YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR CAUSE 2014

EVENT DATE: Jun 29, 2014

THE STORY:

I have chosen the Coeur d’Alene Kroc Center Third Grade Swim Program as the organization that I am fund raising for. To understand why I am so passionate about this program, please see my YouTube video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcdzfKXjXc8.

With your support, you can make a difference in The Kroc Center’s 2015 Third Grade Swim Program and directly help as many as 1,500 third grade students learn this life-saving skill.

 

The Third Grade Swim Program has operated in Kootenai County for over 25 years.  Before The Kroc Center opened in 2009, a reduced number of schools partnered with the YMCA, local athletic clubs, and rehabilitation facilities.  In 2010, 353 students from six schools learned to swim through The Kroc Center's first Third Grade Swim Program.  The response grew to over 600 students participating in 2011 and 2012 and 1,000 students are participating this April and May. Even with this incredible response, this is still only 50% of third grade students in Kootenai County.


In groups of up to 75 students, each school able to participate is scheduled for 5 sessions (some schools have opted for 4 sessions to save money), 1 per day for a week, between May 1 and June 8. Students are bused from their school to The Kroc Center for a 45-minute session.  Each session begins with a verbal lesson in water safety around rivers and lakes.  Students are then divided into groups of five to meet with one of eight instructors, based on their level of experience.  Teaching methods involve direct instruction of swimming mechanics and indirect instruction through fun activities.

 

Around 90% of students have never had a swim lesson prior to Third Grade Swim.  A few of arrive “terrified of the water.”  Based on years of experience, and using our step-by-step swimming and water safety curriculum, Kroc instructors know how to work with even these children.  By the end of the week, they too are splashing around with their classmates and all are wiser on how to be safe around water.
 

Please help me teach children in Kootenai County the life-saving skill of water safety!
