On Friday, June 24, 2016 The Santa Clarita Aquatic Center along with waterparks, pools and other aquatic facilities around the globe hosted the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson to promote this year’s theme Swimming Lessons Save Lives.
68 pool lovers of all ages attended the Santa Clarita Aquatic Center for WLSL and learned techniques from how to properly kick and float, to learning the various strokes used in olympic competitions.
After the lesson was complete, swimmers received certificates recognizing their participation in the event.
According to The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson site, “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. The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson 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.”
