KATY (Covering Katy News) – Typhoon Texas will host free swim lessons on Thursday, June 20 starting at 8:30 a.m. when children of all ages can learn life-saving skills to prevent drowning, the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for U.S. children ages 1-14.
Space is limited to the first 300 participants. Sign up for the free swim lessons is required at https://www.typhoontexas.com/houston/park-events.
The local instruction at the west Houston waterpark is part of the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson, now in its 10th year as coordinated by the World Waterpark Association. Members of the Houston Swim Club will lead the instruction.
Research shows the risk of drowning can be reduced by 88 percent if children participate in formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1-4.
