Bring Your Voice to an Important Conversation

Dear Aquatics Professional,
Become one of the world’s most informed aquatics professionals. Attend an international online meeting to reach a consensus about how we as a profession are ending drowning with swimming lessons.
“Speaking as Aquatics Professionals, when is someone finished with swimming lessons?
Date and time:
February 25, 2021 or March 4, 2021, depending on your hemisphere.

*  There’s an ongoing drowning epidemic worldwide

*  There will be a tsunami of interest in lessons once people can go swimming again

*  The world has two definitions of “I can swim.” Some people think they can swim when they can’t!

Andie Andrews,* Aquatics Specialist in Wallingford, in the U.K, and Melon Dash,** Founder of Miracle Swimming School for Adults in Florida, USA.
And YOU!
We seek input from every voice. Be there to give it!
