About the Program: The Really Awesome People Swimming program (RAPS™) began in 2007 because of the need for ALL children to be able to learn to swim regardless of their economic status. The program teaches children and adults how to swim and how to be safe in, on, and around the water. Children between the ages of 5 and 19 have the highest drowning rates in the country. The drowning rates for minorities are even more staggering, four times higher than any other population! Our program has been extremely successful, teaching 2619 children and adults since its inception.

Really Awesome People Swimming has openings for any minority and/or children/adults on free/reduced lunch between the ages of 5 – 99. The program takes participants on a first come, first served basis. The lessons are held at the Green Run Clubhouse Association Pool in Virginia Beach.
