The nation's top water safety and training organizations are joining forces to present The World's Largest Swimming Lesson on June 22 to build awareness about the vital importance of teaching children to swim to help prevent drowning. Waterparks, pools and other aquatic facilities around the globe will host local WLSL lessons to make noise that swimming lessons save lives. Start times vary depending on participating facilities. Interested attendees can search for a local event to get involved.

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 one to 14. WLSL serves 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 story on a local and national level.
