Detroit Swims is an association wide initiative through the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit. It’s goal is to teach 1,500 children per year in the Metro Detroit area how to swim that would not otherwise have the opportunity due to finances, pool access, or transportation.
The group is a completely grant and donor funded program. If you purchase tickets through www.tigers.com/swimmer $5 from each ticket sold will be donated to Detroit Swims. People who purchase tickets through that link will also receive a Detroit Tigers swim cap.
