We are excited to welcome Tankproof back to the Texas Pool for a week of swim safety in the community!

Tankproof is an Austin-based nonprofit that gives youth in under-served communities education and essentials to navigate life’s currents. From providing quality swim instruction to feeding hundreds on neighborhood food routes, Tankproof has had the opportunity to impact multiple cities, and will continue to expand to others. Its goal is to provide access, equity, and opportunity through our swimming lessons to make communities safer and even save lives.

Registration is now open at for Tankproof’s 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. classes from June 10-14 at the Texas Pool.

These classes are FREE to the public and include boxed lunches provided by Central Market.
