Boys & Girls Club of Carlsbad

The Boys & Girls Club offers free swim lessons to children a predominantly Spanish-speaking community in Carlsbad and fields a competitive swim team. Most families in the program live only and mile or two from the ocean, but have not had previous instruction in water safety. The LA84 Foundation grant funds hundreds of swimming lessons, as well as swimsuits, goggles, shirts, diving rings, kickboards and pull buoys for the Water Safety Swim Team, which competes in Pee-Wee swim meets.
