The Big Swim celebrates our Waterproofing program. Since 1993, Asphalt Green has taught thousands of public school students how to swim free of charge. Sports Illustrated endorsed Waterproofing “as a model to which other learn-to-swim programs should aspire.”  Waterproofing is one of three core Community Programs at Asphalt Green, serving nearly 16,000 inner city children. Contact to find out about visiting one of our free Community Programs.
