Kids Playing in Water

We believe

Every child should have access to swim lessons regardless of their ability to pay.

Swim for Life, a nonprofit organization, was formed by local Snohomish community members who have a passion for enriching the lives of young people in our community. We're dedicated to providing swimming lessons and water safety services to children regardless of their ability to pay.

2nd Grade Program

Swim for Life is offering every 2nd grader enrolled in the Snohomish School District a free session of swim lessons at the Snohomish Aquatic Center for the 2019-2020 school year. This community program is being funded through generous donations raised by

Swim for Life.

Snohomish Aquatic Center

Aquatic programming funded by Swim for Life will be hosted at Snohomish Aquatic Center.
