World’s Largest Swim Lesson

June 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

YMCA Swim Lessons
Join the Kingsport Aquatic Center for a fun afternoon dedicated to safe swimming! The KAC is participating in the World’s Largest Swim Lesson, an event created by the World Waterpark Association to promote the importance of swim safety worldwide.
Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning, the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for U.S. children ages 1-14. Research shows risk of drowning can be reduced by 88 percent if children participate in formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1-4. Yet, a survey conducted by the American Red Cross in 2014 found that more than half of Americans (54 percent) either can’t swim or don’t have all of the basic swimming skills.
At 2 p.m. on June 23, the KAC will host a free swim lesson for all ages. Learn important skills that will keep you and your kids safe in and around the water this summer!
The World’s Largest Swim Lesson is free with KAC daily admission.

EVENT CALENDAR PURPOSE AND CRITERIA


A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.


Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property.
