Want to be part of the world’s largest swimming lesson?
Schlitterbahn Waterparks and the YMCA of Greater Kansas City are participating in the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson on Friday, June 20, to promote the importance of water safety.
The swim lessons will take place at hundreds of locations around the world, including at the four Schlitterbahn Waterparks simultaneously, at 9:30 a.m. June 20. It is a coordinated attempt to break the Guinness World Record.
Schlitterbahn and the Y are hoping to promote the importance of teaching children to swim at a young age to prevent drowning.
Team WLSL holds the current Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson, at 32,450 participants representing 13 countries across five continents.
The swim lesson on June 20 to break the record is free. Participants must register before 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 18, to participate. Event participants may purchase discount admission to Schlitterbahn on June 20 in advance or immediately following their lesson.
