 YMCA's SPLASH Program provides an opportunity for 2nd graders from low-income elementary schools to learn basic life-saving swim skills through a free six-week program at the Y.

Many of the participants have never experienced swimming, so the Y conducts a yearly swimsuit drive in August to ensure everyone can participate without incurring costs.

SPLASH is offered at select schools in Wichita, Augusta and El Dorado from September-May each year.  Lincoln 2nd grade students went to SPLASH in September and October, 2018.
