Host A WLSL Event At Your Facility
Due to delayed opening dates for most aquatic venues brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the official date for the 2020 World's Largest Swimming Lesson™ has been moved to Thursday, July 16th. Host locations also may host their WLSL event on any day they choose in June, July or August. The curriculum for the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™is provided in the WLSL Host Location Kit, which will be available to download from the Materials page after all registration steps are completed. All participating Host Locations are required to teach the WLSL curriculum so that all locations are teaching the same lesson on the same day.
If you are unable to host an event in 2020, we invite you to join us in sharing this message that Swimming Lessons Save Lives™ on your social media channels. Please use the handle @TheWLSL and the hashtags: #WLSL2020, #DrowningisPreventable, #Swimminglessonssavelives or #Drowningispreventable when posting.
There is a $69 registration fee to register as a WLSL Host Location. This fee includes a variety of benefits, many of which are listed below. Special pricing for multiple locations hosting an event in the same city is available upon request. In addition, limited scholarships are available for those Host Locations that wish to participate but are unable to pay the registration fee. Contact Bernadine Buda
for more information on group pricing and applying for a scholarship.
