City Holds Splash Jam for Summer Playground Program Participants
City Parks and Recreation
July 19, 2012 - The City of Knoxville's Parks and Recreation Department is holding its annual "Splash Jam" for children who have participated in the City's Summer Playground Program this year.

The event will start at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 20 at Ed Cothren Pool located at Malcolm Martin Park at 1737 Reynolds St.

Kids will represent their recreation center and will be split into age groups to compete in rounds of friendly competition. These include the dive and retrieve, cannonball, brick swim, underwater frogman, diving, traditional swim, and a four-person swim relay.

The recreation center with children who win the most events will be declared the overall winner. Over 100 children will participate in the event.

Kids who attended the City recreation centers' Summer Playground Program took field trips to the City's Ed Cothren and Inskip pools to learn water safety and swimming techniques. This "Splash Jam" is a celebration of what they have learned this summer.

For information on public swim lessons offered by the City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation Department, call 865-687-9919.
