Wet N Wild Waterworld Hosting ‘World’s Largest Swimming Lesson

On Thursday, June 21, Wet ‘N’ Wild Waterworld, in partnership with the City of El Paso’s Parks and Recreation Department and the Drowning Prevention Coalition of El Paso, will host the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson.

The free event provides a free swimming lesson to hundreds of borderland kids and grownups. The free lesson will begin at 9am and last for half an hour. 

Wet N Wild Waterworld is expecting approximately 300 partcipants. 

Officials share, “Tragically, drowning remains the leading cause of unintended, injury related death for children ages 1-4, 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 receive formal swimming or water safety training.”

Since its inception, more than 235,000 children and adults have participated in WLSL lessons generating more than half a billion media impressions about the vital importance of learning to swim.

The 2017 WLSL event included 41,068 participants from 26 countries. 

Tens of thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world will unite for the ninth year in a row to make noise that Swimming Lessons Save Lives.™ 

A global event, (WLSL), will take place over the course of 24 hours at an estimated 600 locations in more than 20 countries.
