World’s Largest Swim Lesson

Break the record! Chippewa Pool, 11am today! Breaking news: Both WLS and WGN have told us they plan to be at Chippewa Pool to film our part of the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson!

Join us, as we combine our efforts with waterparks, aquatic facilities, swimmers and instructors all around the world in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Swim Lesson!

It’s great fun with a serious purpose. This annual event was created to build awareness about the vital importance of teaching children to swim to help prevent drowning.

Come make some noise and help us spread the word that Swimming Lessons Save Lives.
Bonus: Come for the event, stay all day!
