Second annual National Learn To Swim Day

As temperatures nationwide begin to heat up, parents, grandparents and caretakers will begin preparing for pool parties, trips to the lake, and beach vacations. Now is the time to take a close look at children’s swimming safety.

To increase awareness about the importance of learning to swim, Swimways (, a manufacturer of pool and outdoor recreational products, is encouraging communities and families nationwide to celebrate National Learn to Swim Day all summer.

You are encouraged to celebrate National Learn to Swim Day by signing up your child for swimming lessons, speaking with a local lifeguard about swimming safety, and most importantly, making the commitment as a family to be safer around water. For more information about National Learn to Swim Day, please visit the event’s dedicated website, which includes useful resources for parents, such as downloadable materials, a swimming certificate of achievement and water safety tips:
