Swim Lessons & Public Pools in Tulsa Oklahoma
If you are living in or visiting Tulsa OK this summer you will have a chance to attend the World’s Largest Swim Lesson. Join tens of thousands of people from around the globe in efforts to help prevent childhood drowning by teaching children to swim. This year’s event will be called ‘Swimming Lessons Save Lives’.
This World’s Largest Swim Lesson will also attempt to set a new Guinness Book of World Records for the most swimming lessons ever conducted at one time. Currently, the record is 32,450 participants, which was done in 2013. There were over 430 facilities in 13 different countries participating in that record.
You can join this record breaking event at Reed Parks this Friday, June 20, 2014. Tulsa Parks will be hosting the event. You can register at 9 am and lessons will begin at 10 am.
The 2013 record breaking swimming lessons event helped spread such an important message to people with children throughout the world. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental injuries and deaths among children ages one to five years old. It is the second leading cause of injury and death in children under 14.
This event is so very important because research has shown that swimming lessons can help lower the risk of injuries and deaths by drowning by 88%. It’s more of a safety training for children that will benefit them for years to come. You can get more information about organizations who offer swim lessons at www.wlsl.org.
