Special Olympics and the Michael Phelps Foundation have been teaming up since 2007 to enhance the quality of swimming for our athletes and education for our coaches. Our partnership will support us in not only raising the number of certified swimming coaches who support the hundreds of thousands of Special Olympics Swimmers, but more importantly will help to raise the standard of coaching provided to them. The program encourages healthy and active lifestyles through health and wellness education, water-safety classes, swim training and fun. The IM Program is made up of 5 “bubble” initiatives: IM Safe, IM Fun, IM Fast, IM Healthy and IM Successful.
