Our Mission

The mission of Minneapolis Swims, a nonprofit organization, is to bring equity, access and the opportunity that swimming brings to all people of Minneapolis.

Our goals:

  • Save lives by teaching all children how to swim.
  • Provide inner-city youth access to swim teams, which historically lack in racial diversity.
  • Promote swimming as a foundation for a healthy, active lifestyle to help lower obesity rates and diseases like diabetes.
