It's official, the World's Largest Swimming Lesson is now in the record books.

More than 50 aquatics facilities on four continents joined forces last month to create the record-breaking lesson attempt. At each location, certified instructors taught a 45-minute beginner lesson developed by top water safety groups. Numerous aquatics organizations, including the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals,United States Swim School Association and the World Waterpark Association, came together to bring the importance of safe swimming to the public’s attention. The international swim lesson was conceptualized as the culminating celebration of this year’s National Water Safety Month.
