Sponosored Youth Swim Passes Now Available

Release Date: 6/13/2012 10:30:00 AM

CONTACT: Jack Busch, Spokane Parks & Recreation, (509) 626-6205

Swimming at the City of Spokane’s six Aquatic Centers begins the week of June 18.

This year, the Spokane Parks and Recreation Department has once again teamed up with the Parks Foundation’s Make-A-Splash Program and the Salvation Army to provide no-cost youth season passes for those in need.

How can I apply for a youth “sponsored swim” pass?

  • Visit the Salvation Army at 222 E. Indiana Ave (Mon-Fri 8:30am – 5:00pm, except Wed)
  • Ask for an application, complete application and self-declare income.
  • Submit application. Upon approval, you will be given a pass.

Does the Parks Department offer sponsored swim lessons?

Yes, the Spokane Parks and Recreation Department has received a grant from the Make-A-Splash Program to fund a limited number of swim lessons for youth in our community. Applications for Swim Lesson Scholarships are available by calling the Spokane Parks and Recreation Department at (509) 625-6200.

My child needs a swimsuit, how can I get one?

The Spokane Parks Foundation’s Suits-for-Kids program has a limited number of suits available for youth in need. For more information, call the foundation at (509) 326-5233.

Meanwhile, donations are still being sought to help more kids swim for free for the 2012 swim season. To contribute please go to the Spokane Parks Foundation website and click on “Make-A-Splash.”
