Mayor Shull has officially declared May as Water Safety Month in Kingsport, and the Kingsport Aquatic Center is celebrating with Water Safety Day this Saturday, May 15.

“We take water safety very seriously at the Aquatic Center, in, on and around the water,” said Madison Gump, KAC Operation Supervisor of Programming. “We’re excited to offer this opportunity to help you learn more about water safety.”

Beginning at 1 p.m., join the KAC  to learn about the importance of staying safe around the water. This fun, educational afternoon will include trivia, prizes, safety demonstrations and more as you explore topics of water safety. You’ll learn how to keep your kiddos safe whether you’re swimming at the Kingsport Aquatic Center or anywhere else this summer!

The KAC will also have an information table available starting at 12:30 p.m. where you can learn about the many programs the KAC offers, including swim lessons, the Junior Viperfish Summer Swim Team and the Viperfish Masters Team.

Water Safety Day is free with KAC daily admission. To learn more about the Kingsport Aquatic Center and its programs, visit or call 423-343-9758.
