Here at BSAC our focus remains on bringing awareness to the importance of learning to swim. Florida continues to lead the nation in youth drowning rates due to the magnitude of water in our area. We strive to impact our community every day by potentially saving hundreds of lives. We are able to share the gift of swimming with thousands of children per year through new partnerships and countless initiatives.

That being said, we are very excited to announce a brand new partnership with Chick-Fil-A! Upon completion of a set of swimming lessons, each child will receive a coupon for a free ice cream cone or box of nuggets! What better way to celebrate water safety than having a delicious treat from Chick-Fil-A, who just like us, is closed on Sunday’s.

Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children ages 1-4 in Florida, and is the second leading cause of accidental death for children aged 1-14 in the United States. That risk decreases by 88% after formal lessons are taken.

“Tammy and Paul Holmberg and their Chick-fil-A team have long been advocates of the learn to swim initiative in our community,” said BSAC CEO Chuck Burgess. “Their continual support of BSAC and its programs have enabled us to teach hundreds of children to learn to swim over the years. We are very excited to have them as a partner in saving lives through our partnership to have every child in our community swimming!”

We are so grateful for this new partnership with Chick-Fil-A and the opportunity it provides to excite children about swimming!

(Chick-Fil-A coupon promotion is not in addition to Papa John’s coupon. One coupon per child per set of swimming lessons)
