Watch this space for SwimOff@3 2021 news!
KickOff@3 is excited to announce the news of a SwimOff@3 2021 initiative taking place later this year. Whilst we are keeping up-to-date with the latest Covid-19 restrictions, we do hope to start the project during the summer period later this year.
We don’t have all the details figured out just yet as we wait to see how restrictions surrounding the pandemic develop over time, but we do hope to carry out our SwimOff@3 initiative during the summer months of 2021. We want to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to get their swim gear on and brush up on their skills whether that’s for fun or fitness.
While the initiative is open to anyone and everyone who wants to improve their swimming abilities or take on the challenge for a bit of fun and physical exercise, we do hope to reach members of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. For various reasons, members of these groups are less likely to be able to swim – we aim to change that deadly fact.
To put things into perspective, 80% of young black people and children in England do not swim. That percentage rises to 95% for black adults in England. We hope our SwimOff@3 initiative will inspire individuals of this community to take on the challenge of learning to swim, or, improve their swimming skills that could potentially make the important difference between life and death.
