World's Largest Swim Lesson

Typhoon Texas will be taking part June 20 in a worldwide event called the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson, now in its 10th year as coordinated by the World Waterpark Association. Members of the Houston Swim Club will lead the free instruction starting at 8:30 a.m. Children of all ages can learn life-saving skills to prevent drowning. Researchers said the risk of drowning can be reduced by 88 percent if children participate in formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1-4. Space for the swimming lessons is limited to the first 300 participants.
