Total Aquatic Programming and National Drowning Prevention Alliance Board of Directors have joined together to improve the "The Drowning Report" data. Please read further to learn more about the new process that is coming soon.
We have been collecting drowning data since 2008. This process involves about 1100-man hours per year plus cost for programs and support. Recently we have faced the following challenges:
It is time for TAP-LLC to update the way we collect and present data. This has a cost that we cannot totally absorb, and after talking to many users it is too important to just lose! We are moving to a subscription-based model. $99.95 per year will get you all the information you are used to plus:
The drowning report will continue in its current form until all programming and testing is completed on the new system. We will notified everyone when completed and ready to access.
Thank you for your patients.

Story boards are a great way to keep children of all ages engaged in water safety education. This set of 6 boards take children through a water safety story and highlight ways to keep them safer.
Each board includes a full script, activity and talking points for the presenter. A must-have for all educators and swim schools to include in their community outreach programs and water safety presentations.
"I just wanted to let you know that I download your data every month and have been compiling data for Washington State. I use your data to talk about drowning cases in Washington. I was able to see that we had about twice as many drownings in Washington this summer compared to typical years possibly due to COVID-19 though it is difficult to identify any causal relationships.
Your work is precious as there is no one else who is doing this kind of work. Thank you and keep up the great work!"
You will notice a change in the way information is displayed on this month’s drowning main spreadsheet. All notes have been edited and incorporated into a table to the right of name-age-place columns. This will allow a quicker overview of drowning situations. We thank the NDPA for their support in our quest to improve the collection of drowning statistics. For the near future, all of our data will remain free to those who are involved in drowning prevention initiatives.
We also thank Stop Drowning Now for their overall support.
