Through a partnership of the University of Memphis, Memphis Tiger Swimming, Splash Mid-South, YMCA of Memphis and the Mid-South and the Rose Foundation, a one-of-a-kind aquatics center, named for Memphis businessman and philanthropist Mike Rose, will be developed that draws upon a robust aquatics program in the heart of Memphis to promote water safety and enrich community health among diverse populations.  Mike was passionate about helping more youth learn the lessons of hard work, resilience and leadership that swimming teaches while also seeing that more underserved children gain the lifesaving skill of being able to swim.
