Set a swim record Friday

SHARC in Hillsboro a part of World's Largest Swim Lesson


On Friday, June 20, tens of thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world will unite for the fifth year in a row to set a new Guinness World Record for the world’s largest swimming lesson.

Shute Park Aquatics & Recreation Center in Hillboro will offer a free swimming lesson for children ages 6-12 on Friday at 8 a.m. Registration is required.

The current Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson is 32,450 participants from 13 countries across five continents.

The event is intended to raise awareness that formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning among children under age 14.

Register in person at SHARC or any Hillsboro parks and rec facility or online at Hillsboro-oregon.gov/parksrec. Learn more at WLSL.org.
