NATIONAL LEARN TO SWIM DAY – Third Saturday in May


National Learn to Swim Day Third Saturday in May

NATIONAL LEARN TO SWIM DAY

National Learn to Swim Day is observed annually on the third Saturday in May.  This day is dedicated to educating parents and children about water safety.  Before Memorial Day Weekend and the start of summer, it is an opportunity for families to learn the importance and benefits of learning to swim.

While swimming is enjoyed by all ages the year-round, summer is a time when we take to the lakes, rivers and outdoor pools.  Because of the risks involved when one is in the water, safety and knowledge, from the earliest age, is vital.
