Safety events and offers

As part of an ongoing commitment to the communities we serve, SRP coordinates water safety events and efforts with numerous local organizations.

Water safety workshops

SRP in partnership with Phoenix Children’s Hospital is offering free water safety workshops, Playing it Safe, for parents and caregivers of children ages five and under. During this one-hour workshop, adults will learn:

  • basic water safety,
  • ways to reduce stress at the swimming pool and
  • tools to improve supervision.

The program helps parents recognize the stresses that can sometimes occur on what should be a fun day at the pool and empowers them with information and tools to make pool time enjoyable and safe.

Workshops can be scheduled in small groups, or individually. For more information about Playing it Safe, email

Discounted swimming lessons

Swimming lessons are fun and can help save lives. SRP is committed to helping keep families safe around water, which is why we sponsor swimming lessons around the Valley.
