Swimming Lessons in New Orleans

Curtis Macken

NEW ORLEANS, LA — Sunday, July 25, 2021, marks the first World Drowning Prevention Day, which was designated by the United Nations General Assembly in April.

This is to prevent deaths by drowning, as it is one of the most common causes of death among children aged 5-14. New Orleans offers various programs and classes to facilitate your need for swimming.

Moreover, in South Louisiana, you can't walk more than 10 feet without coming across a body of water.

When deciding where to take swim lessons in New Orleans, there are numerous options to consider. You can begin with water babies or "Mommy and Me" lesson, in which a parent joins the infant in the water for an easy transition. Alternatively, you might start from the beginning with formal lessons in which the youngster is not accompanied by a parent in the water.

Here are some clubs and communities that can be your reference for learning to swim for babies, children, or adults:
