TASA strives to eliminate boundaries that keep our community from water safety and participating in the sport of swimming.


TASA raises money by partnering with individuals, businesses, and foundations that want to be a force for health, safety, mentorship and athletics in their community. 

The Triad Amateur Swimming Association (TASA) was established in 2022 with the single premise of offering financial support to individuals who cannot afford the cost of swim lessons for their children.   Soon after, we came to fully understand that there are many facets that go into the creation and implementation of a swim lesson.  That being the case, we support all aspects of our aquatic community through:


  • Fundraising through events and donors to cover the cost of TASA sponsored swim lessons for qualifying children of low income and underprivileged families. 

  • Sponsoring of dues associated with competitive swimming, lifeguard certifications, and swim instructor licensing. 

  • Financially supporting our TASA partner facilities in the form of rent and / or an official written agreement between TASA and the approved partner. 

The pandemic has been detrimental to the social life of children.  These unusual circumstances represent a good opportunity to strengthen different areas of preparation while in the water. Swimming, as an extracurricular activity provides important opportunities for children to interact with their peers, develop social skills and discover new interests.

One of the best ways to care for your child physically, mentally and socially is through swim lessons. TASA has been established to address these needs, while providing mentorship to those children in need. 

Public pools and beaches all over the country are facing lifeguard shortages. It is a problem that has also been exacerbated by the pandemic. The American Lifeguard Association estimates one-third of the nation's beaches and pools are affected by the shortage. This creates an opportunity for summer and winter employment for those interest in saving lives.
