Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death of children ages 1-14. Research shows that if a child doesn't learn to swim before the 3rd grade, they likely never will. The World's Largest Swimming Lesson is designed to draw attention to this issue, and encourage participation in swimming lesson programs. 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 at 10 a.m. EST. SeaWorld and Aquatica are proud to put on this incredible event to bring attention to water safety.
