Does My Child Qualify for Free Lessons?

The Drowning Prevention Coalition provides vouchers for free/reduced cost swim lessons for qualified children ages 2-12. Vouchers are provided on a first come / first served basis. Once funding for a fiscal year is exhausted, the program is not offered again until the subsequent fiscal year.

A maximum of two vouchers are available per qualified child for their lifetime (3 vouchers if the child is special needs). A second voucher will be denied if the child does not attend all lessons in the first session.

Children who achieve level three in the swim program are not eligible for an additional voucher. This is to enable non-swimming children to participate in the program.

Parents whose child(ren) qualify and receive a voucher, may sign up for lessons at certain participating aquatic facilities in Palm Beach County. Contact us by email or call us at 561-616-7068 for a list of facilities.
