The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ was created as a platform to help aquatic facilities and the many different regional, national and international water safety and drowning prevention organizations work together to communicate the fundamental importance of teaching children to swim.
Locally, several pools and safety advocates are participating in this endeavor and will offer over 300 local children a free swimming lesson and a chance to participate in this year’s Guinness world record attempt.
