About the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash Initiative
The USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative is a national child-focused water safety
campaign, which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim. Through
Make a Splash, the USA Swimming Foundation partners with learn-to-swim providers and water safety
advocates across the country to provide swimming lessons and educate children and their families on
the importance of learning how to swim. The USA Swimming Foundation has invested millions of
dollars to provide grants to qualified Make a Splash Local Partner learn-to-swim programs, to spread
national awareness, and to bring together strategic partners to end drowning. To date, more than 7.5
million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through the USA Swimming
Foundation Make a Splash Local Partner network, comprised of 1,000 qualified lesson providers
across the nation. To learn more, visit www.usaswimmingfoundation.org/makeasplash.

SwimJams & TeamPrep | Apr 15-18 & Apr 22-25, 2019
Similar to our group classes, we guarantee no more than four students in any class. This allows our instructors to effectively spend quality time with each student in the class, ensuring that everyone progresses evenly. In our SwimJams, students are broken into classes that ensure approximately similar age and skill level among participants. This program is a great refresher, jump start, or “camp” for swimmers that is offered during the summer and holiday breaks.
TeamPrep focuses on freestyle and backstroke technique for summer league swimmers. This is a 4-day intensive program where the instructor will record and analyze video of the swimmers. This class is a 4-day, 45 minute intensive program with a 3:1 Ratio. Swimmers must be 7 to 12 years old, have swim team experience and know the strokes proficiently.

Our very own Darin and Kristin Mai were recently featured in Folsom El Dorado Hills' STYLE Magazine. They had the opportunity to discuss why they wanted to bring SwimLabs to our community and some of their favorite local spots!
On how they're involved with both the community and their customers:
"We enjoy being able to provide quality services to the residents of El Dorado Hills and the surrounding counties. We’ve been able to adapt our programs based on the needs of our community and have also developed clinics and team days to support swimmers getting ready for the summer swim season. In addition, we’re part of local events, including Saturday Night in the Park and the Gold Country Half Marathon, and continue to provide donations to area elementary schools, the library, and other small businesses. What’s more, we’ve established a corporate membership with a local gym as part of a wellness program for our staff. We’re so grateful for our partnership with the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce and look forward to building more relationships with the community."

SwimLabs El Dorado Hills Featured in Dorado Living Magazine
Meet Darin and Kristin Mai, the husband and wife team behind the newly opened SwimLabs, a swim school in El Dorado Hills. The Mais have lived in Cameron Park for four years and hope to bring a unique approach to the swimming community in El Dorado County.
Is SwimLabs El Dorado Hills a husband-wife venture? Who does what in the business?
Yes. We own the business together. Darin is the aquatics director and Kristin is the operations manager. Darin is an award-winning swimmer and has been involved with swimming for the past 30 years. He also swam collegiately at UC Davis and has been an assistant coach at the college level. Currently, he’s the head coach for AquaSol, a year-round swim team. Darin sits on the Board of Directors for Sierra Nevada Swimming and chairs the Technical Planning Committee.
I bring my background as an occupational therapist to the sport of swimming to work with children who have special needs at the facility.
