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.
