Free Adult Swim Lessons
The Swimming Saves Lives Foundation has declared April “Adult Learn-to-Swim” month. There are more than 18 million swimming pools and hot tubs in the USA. Yet, according to the Centers for Disease Control, 37% of American adults cannot swim the length of a pool. Every day, about 10 people die from drowning. The majority of unintentional drowning victims are adults. Drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States. The CDC identifies a variety of factors that can influence drowning risk, including the lack of swimming ability. Research also shows that the children of adults who don’t know how to swim are at a greater risk of not learning to swim, which increases their risk of drowning.
In support of these efforts, Zionsville Aquatic Center along with the Zionsville Aquatic Masters Adult Swim Team is offering free adult swim lessons during the month of April. Free lessons will be held at the Zionsville Aquatic Center.
