APRIL-MAY 2021





    JUNE 17th 2021


    Our programs empower residents and visitors to Antigua with water safety knowledge and basic swim and lifesaving skills.


    If you have a fear of the water and want to learn to overcome the fear and begin to feel comfortable in the water then our programs are right for you.


    The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ (WLSL) is created by the World Waterpark Association.


    The WLSL event serves as a platform to help the global aquatics industry work together to build awareness about the fundamental importance of teaching children to swim to prevent drowning.


    Research shows the risk of drowning can be reduced by 88 per cent if children participate in formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1-4.


    Water Safety Antigua will be participating in the 2021 World's Largest Swimming Lesson™ to be held on Thursday, June 17th.


    We'll have support from the Wadadli Aquatic Racers Swim Club and the Ministry of Tourism National Lifeguards.
