Core to PlaySmart’s mission is to ensure that all kids have fundamental life skills – swimming is one of those skills! PlaySmart made it possible for over 125 kids in Irvington, NJ to join the local swimming program. Not only did kids learn water safety and swimming skills, but the program incorporated health, fitness, teamwork and confidence building activities.  Also as part of the summer, the kids and the local community held a pep-rally for local swimmer and Olympian Cullen Jones! The pep-rally gave the kids a chance to meet a local hero and demonstrate their new found love for swimming.
