World's Largest Swimming Lesson hopes to save lives!

The World's Largest Swimming Lesson™ will debut on Thursday, June 22, as waterparks, pools and other aquatic facilities around the globe will host local swim lessons in an effort to promote the message 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.

The National Drowning Prevention Alliance supports Team WLSL and encourages members and aquatic facilities to join the effort by  registering as an official WLSL Host Location or volunteering for the 2017 event.  More information and registration is available at
