Swim IN Safety Program presented by Eli Lilly and Company

USA Swimming and the 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming presented by Lilly Local Organizing Committee are launching the Indiana Water Safety Program (Swim IN Safety). In partnership with the Indy Aquatic Alliance longitudinal program, Swim IN Safety presented by Eli Lilly and Company will teach water safety to as many Hoosiers as possible ages 5 and older over the course of the next two years. The goal of the program is to train 25,000 individuals to be water safe in 2023 and an additional 25,000 in 2024. Swim IN Safety will serve as one of several legacy initiatives surrounding the 2024 Olympic Swimming Trials set to take place at Lucas Oil Stadium June 15-23, 2024.

Swim IN Safety aims to recruit organizations to teach programming which entails five 40-minute sessions to teach participants to save themselves if they fall in water. Indiana Sports Corp is currently collecting interest form applications for organizations throughout Indiana looking to take part in the Swim IN Safety initiative. The form can be found on the Indiana Sports Corp website or via this link
