International Learn to Swim Week

May 2019

How much do you value life skills?

Help us carry the importance of learning to swim across the world, by increasing water confidence and life skills in your local communities.

STA’s Learn to Swim Week is going global this year, to offer everyone the opportunity to learn to swim, no matter where they are in the world.

With over 150 Swim Star Swim Schools, 20 substantial Swim Academies and 30,000 STA swimming teachers internationally, we want everyone to get involved to teach the enjoyable and important skill of learning to swim.

Help STA preserve human life by the teaching of swimming, lifesaving, and survival techniques by participating in our biggest Learn to Swim campaign yet. With your help we can encourage people of all ages and abilities to get in the pool and open the door to a wealth of water skills.

Will your support really make a difference?

Your participation could change the lives of adults and children alike who suffer anxiety entering a pool environment. Last year, STA found over 25% of parents and 1 in 3 children (aged 0-16 years) could not swim.

With a lack of opportunities to explore swimming for enjoyment, to learn vital life skills and water safety education, children grow up unable to support themselves in dangerous situations. We need your help to make a change.

Give your local community a chance to experience and find comfort in your valuable swimming lessons and leisure facilities. With free resources and ideas created by STA’s aquatics team, you will have everything you need to get involved in STA’s International Learn to Swim Week 2018.
