The lesson starts promptly at 9 am and all participants must be ready to begin on time. Children under the age 4 must be accompanied in the water by a parent or guardian. Since its inception, more than 278,000 children and adults have participated in WLSL lessons generating more than half a billion media impressions about the vital importance of learning to swim “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,” said Recreation Coordinator Jacki Nuss. “The WLSL™ 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.” For more information, about the WLSL, please visit www.worldslargestswimminglesson.org.
