Meeting with Sport Parks and Recreation

VIPCA has met with the asst. Commissioner of Sport Parks and Recreation and the following came about:

  1. VIPCA’s vision would be that all children at Virgin Islands Elementary schools are taught to swim. This could be facilitated with funding through the Department of Sports, Parks and Recreation of school bus transportation and lessons at the St Thomas Swimming Association pool (STSA).
  2. VIPCA would be interested to know if there is funding available within the Dept. of Sports, Parks and Recreation for the charter of a bus and driver and swim training with STSA? If not, VIPCA and its 501(c)3 Marine Rebuild Fund in CFVI would be willing to assist in raising a grant and partnering to run the school swimming program.
