Event registration begins at 9 a.m. at the park’s Big Surf Shores wave pool. The swim lesson will take place from 10 – 10:30 a.m. and each participant will receive a special certificate upon completion.

U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame member and three-time Olympic gold medalist, Ambrose “Rowdy” Gaines will be onsite to lend a helping hand with the lesson and meet participants.

Drowning is one of the top five causes of death for children between the ages 1-14.  Research has found if a child does not learn to swim before the 3rd grade, they likely never will. The World's Largest Swimming Lesson was created to draw attention to this fact and encourage participation in swimming lesson programs. Tens of thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world will all take part to attempt to set a new Guinness World Record.
