Splash Week at the YMCA

World’s largest swimming lesson

Posted:

CUMMING, Ga. – With summer starting, water safety becomes a growing concern. Learning how to swim is the most effective way to prevent accidental drowning.

But where can you get lessons?

The Forsyth County Family YMCA, 6050 Y Street, invites families and friends, ages 3 and up, to dive into the world’s largest swimming lesson during their second annual Splash Week.

With 35 previous participants, and already 30 signed up this year, Deborah Kelly said, “We will absolutely beat our record from last year.”

The YMCA summer camp will be combining with any new swimmers for the largest swimming lesson at the Forsyth location, but participants are also invited to swim at Eagle Point, Lake Lanier June 20 from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

It is a fun way to learn about water safety and be a part of a worldwide event to reclaim the Guinness World Record.

“We are continuing to break our own record,” Kelly said.

The admission is free, but registration is required in order to be counted for the Guinness World Record. Register at www.ymcaregistration.com, at the front desk or with a YMCA representative at Eagle Point.
