World's Largest Swimming Lesson

 

The nation’s top water safety and training organizations are joining forces to present The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ (WLSL) on Thursday, June 22, 2017. The event was founded to build awareness about the vital importance of teaching children to swim to help prevent drowning.  On June 22, the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ will take place over the course of 24 hours at an estimated 500 locations in more than 20 different countries to make noise to let people know that Swimming Lessons Save Lives™.

Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning, the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for children ages 1-14. The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ was created to serve as a platform to help local community aquatic facilities and the many different national, regional and state wide water safety and drowning prevention organizations work together to tell this important story on a local and national level. Since its inception, more than 155,000 children and adults have participated in WLSL lessons generating more than half a BILLION lifesaving, learn-to-swim media impressions.
