The 2017 World’s Largest Swimming Lesson (WLSL) is set to take place on June 22. Aquatic facilities worldwide are registering to host this year’s event, as organizers set their sights on the goal of reaching more than one billion with the message Swimming Saves Lives™ by 2019.
Free swimming lessons will be offered in Baie Verte, N.L., thanks to a five-year, $50,000 commitment to the town’s regional swim program by Anaconda Mining Inc., a Toronto-based gold mining and exploration company.
The National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF) is seeking proposals from qualified individuals or organizations in its efforts to develop a “Learn-to-Swim Index” (LTS Index) that tracks how many people have completed formal swim lessons in the United States.
The National Swimming Pool Foundation® (NSPF®) has received a $40,000 donation from The Master Pools Guild for its Step Into Swim™ Campaign, which helps fund programs that teach the life-saving skill of swimming.
