Swim School in Los Angeles Receives Generous Grant from Loaded Boards for Special Needs Swim Lessons

May 1 2014, 2:18am CDT | by

One with the Water swim school in Los Angeles was recently honored for its mission and achievements this March with a generous grant from Loaded Boards earmarked for special needs swim lessons for students and at-risk youth.

Los Angeles, CA, May 01, 2014 --(PR.com)-- One with the Water®, a non-profit swim school dedicated to teaching life-changing swimming skills to kids and adults - many of them with disabilities or special needs - was honored for its mission and achievements this March with a generous grant from Loaded Boards earmarked for the special-needs students and at-risk youth. The grant will cover a complete pre-competition swimming program of small-group swim practices, taking each child from no water experience to competition in small local swim meets, at the Culver City Municipal Plunge.

Loaded Boards, with over 98,000+ riders, has expanded its philanthropy to help give swimming lessons to under-served and at-risk youth to learn basic water skills that can prevent tragic incidents of childhood drowning. "Loaded Boards has made an impact on kids all over the southland by providing them with a means of athletic adventure," says Loaded Board's Founder Don Tashman.

Tashman was inspired to donate to One with the Water after seeing the benefits made from his own swimming lessons.

After taking swimming lessons with Coach Kenneth Rippetoe of One with the Water I was amazed at how quickly I progressed and was able to develop a great skill for exercising and maintaining my own health. Coach Kenneth's passion for swimming spread to me and I wanted to share that with others as is our mission at Loaded Boards. Don Tashman, Founder Loaded Boards

One with the Water has offered the swim team places to the 75 children of CoachArt that participated in the free swimming lessons in the summer of 2013 provided by the Coast2Coast Swim Challenge. CoachArt is a non-profit offering free lessons in the arts and athletics to patients ages 6-18 living with chronic illnesses such as Arthritis, Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis, Diabetes, HIV/AIDS, Sickle Cell Disease and severe Asthma. Siblings of patients are also included in the program.

Grants and donations to One with the Water pay exclusively for pool space, insurance, and instruction for kids and families with limited financial means. Especially during the nation's budget crisis, many schools lack the financial resources, personnel and facilities to provide athletic programs or physical therapy for children with special needs. One with the Water aims to fill that need, with specially-trained instructors and a nimble, low-overhead, non-profit model of operation.

Loaded Boards' Don Tashman stated that at Loaded, "We enjoy what we do and we love to challenge each other and to challenge you. We expect you to challenge us back and we feel that this is the key to personal and communal growth. One with the Water is part of our community and we are very pleased to challenge children participating in One with the Water's swimming programs."

This weekend’s UFC Fight Night event will undoubtedly be of more interest to you than last weekend’s UFC 177 event. Crazy how that works, right? UFC 177 was somehow a PPV and UFC Fight Night Foxwoods is FREEE and it features Gegard Mousasi vs. Jacare Souza and Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Chiesa. I don’t even know anymore. Joe Lauzon is a New Englander, he’s also an avid gamer and is always busy on social media. All of these things combine into making him fighting in Con ...
