May 19, 2018 - Founded by Swimways in 2012, National Learn to Swim Day is dedicated to educating parents and children about water safety and the importance and benefits of learning to swim. Held on the third Saturday of May each year, Swimways encourages parents and caregivers nationwide to celebrate in their own way.
While swimming is enjoyed by all ages the year-round, summer is a time when we take to the lakes, rivers and outdoor pools. Because of the risks involved when one is in the water, safety and knowledge, from the earliest age, is vital. National Learn to Swim Day was created by Swimways Corp.
May 16, 2017 - So each year, the 3rd Saturday in May is National Learn to Swim Day. May is an important time to focus on learning to swim, as it's the month that most pools across the United Stated will open.
