BSAC to Host Worlds Largest Swim Lesson on June 18, 2015Jun 08 2015
On Thursday, June 18th, 2015, tens of thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world will unite for the sixth year in a row to set a new Guinness World Record. The global record attempt for The World's Largest Swimming Lesson (WLSL), will take place at 10 a.m. wherever you are.
Team WLSL holds the current Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson, which stands at 36,564 participants representing 22 different countries! The 2014 WLSL event generated more than 50 million+ media impressions, spreading the event's important message to hundreds of thousands of families.
Tragically, drowning remains the leading cause of unintended, injury related death for children ages 1-5, and the second leading cause of accidental death for children under 14. Research shows participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children aged 1 to 4, yet many kids do not recieve formal swimming or water safety training.
Brandon Sports and Aquatic Center will continue leading the Tampa Bay area in youth drowning prevention programs by serving as an official Host Location Facility for the WLSL 2015 event. Parents are invited to learn more about this phenomenal event by visiting WLSL.org.
