World’s Largest Swimming Lesson

The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ (WLSL) is a global drowning prevention event launched by the World Waterpark Association in 2010.  The program is supported by the leading aquatics and safety organizations and takes place at all types of aquatic facilities from huge waterparks to small community pools and swim schools. WLSL serves as a platform to help communities build awareness about the fundamental importance of teaching children to swim. Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning, the number one cause of death for U.S. children ages 1-4, and second leading cause for children 5-14.

Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows risk of drowning can be reduced by 88% if children participate in formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1-4.  Yet, a survey conducted by the American Red Cross in 2020 found that more that half of Americans (56%) either can’t swim or don’t have the necessary basic swimming skills.  TEAM WLSL™ is on a mission to make everyone aware that swim lessons are vital.
