Tomorrow: World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™!


The 92nd Street Y May Center for Health, Fitness & Sport will be a participating venue in the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ event on tomorrow, June 14 with aquatics facilities around the world who will simultaneously provide free swim lessons at 11am ET.

Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death of children between the ages of 1 and 14 and The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ promotes awareness of this issue by partnering with local aquatics facilities, as well as water safety and training organizations around the country, to stress the importance of teaching children to swim. The June 14 event will attempt to set a new Guinness World Record by attracting 25,000 participants!

“We are excited to be a host facility for this event,” says Lane Wineski, who is the director of aquatics programs at 92Y May Center. “Swimming is an important life skill and is also an effective total body workout. Teaching kids to swim at an early age helps them build confidence in themselves, which will pay dividends as they become older.”

Parents interested in registering their child for the event at the May Center should contact Lane Wineski.
