Free swimming lessons are being offered by the Town of Milton in recognition of National Drowning Prevention Week, which runs from July 16-22.

National Drowning Prevention Week is organized annually by the Lifesaving Society and promotes the importance of practicing safe water habits. Milton will offer free Swim to Survive lessons in an effort to raise water safety awareness.

Residents can register for free 30-minute Swim to Survive lessons aimed at helping inexperienced and new swimmers feel more confident around water.

The lessons will follow the Swim to Survive guidelines and be held over multiple sessions on July 17 and 19, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Rotary Park Pool.

Registration is required. Participants can register here.

In addition to the swim lessons, a free competition is open to former participants of the Town’s lifesaving programs, including Bronze Star, Bronze Medallion, and Bronze Cross.

The competition will serve as a refresher on how lifesavers can keep themselves and others safe in water environments. Participants will face rescue simulations where they will need to put their past training to practice. The event is being held Friday, July 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Rotary Park Pool.

Interested residents can register here.
