What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The earth is made up of 71% water. Every day, about 10 people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children aged 14 or younger. Children also need affordable summer activities that help children grow as individuals. Our program helps children learn a life saving skill while having fun with other children in the community. We strive to help the children learn to be leaders, team players, and most importantly give them the confidence they need to feel good about oneself.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

HMR Swim Club, Inc

Our philosophy is to provide children with a fun and safe environment while they learn and grow as swimmers. We promote integrity, good sportsmanship, self-discipline, commitment, teamwork, and most of all enjoyment. The program will build confidence, physical fitness, develop leadership qualities, and provide a platform for personal growth. We encourage swimmers to compete with oneself- winning is not our main goal. The swimmer's improvement is our primary objective.

Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our goal is to use our summer swim team as a way to teach children a life saving skill while building up their self esteem. We aim to teach each child they are part of a team and the only way to succeed as one is to work together.

Our strategy is to use practices, team events, and competition to help the children learn a life saving skill and become part of team. This brings our community together and shows the children how we as a community can come together for the greater good.

We are in the beginning stages but we have the coaches and all the equipment needed to succeed. We are still finding our way but we look forward to fine tuning how we get things accomplished.

Our indicators will include. How many children are on the team? How many qualified to swim at the championship meet? How many swam at the championship meet? We will add more indicators as we move forward but for now we feel this is enough at the beginning stages.

Our team has grown and last year alone almost one third of the team swam at the championship meet. All one hundred fifteen kids knew how to swim an entire length of a twenty five meter pool unassisted. We hope to continue to grow the team and teach more children this life saving skill.
