The Lovettsville Community Pool will join thousands of children and adults at aquatic facilities across the nation - and in thirteen countries - to attempt a new Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Swim Lesson (WLSL). This will be the fifth annual WLSL event, scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Friday, June 20.
According to Team WLSL, "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." WLSL's mission is to teach children the importance of learning how to swim at an early age to help prevent drowning.
Hundreds of aquatic facilities from more than 20 countries around the globe are registered, and others can continue to register until June 10.
Participants should arrive at the Lovettsville Pool no later than 11:00 a.m. on June 20. The lesson will last approximately 30 minutes, followed by games and activities.
Regular admission rates will apply. For more information, call the Lovettsville Community Center at 540-822-5284 or visit www.WLSL.org.
