This Thursday, Yas Waterworld is doing the unthinkable and taking part in The World’s Largest Swim Lesson (#WLSL). Crazy!

The Emirati-themed waterpark is the official host location for the WLSL 2017 along with 600 locations worldwide, all hoping to spread awareness of how swimming lessons can help save lives.

In a study conducted by WLSL, it was discovered that formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 per cent among children ages 1 to 4. Yet many children still do not receive any types of formal swimming lessons or water safety training.

“Safety is in our top priorities, and we feel we have a duty to take part in educating children and parents about the importance of water safety,” said Bianca Sammut, General Manager of Yas Waterworld.
