Adapted Swim Lessons
This program is recommended for ages 4 and up. Each child progresses at his/her own pace. Several levels of skill will be involved. Each skill level will incorporate stroke development, endurance, water sports and games, personal growth as well as rescue and safety skills. One to one ratio is usually the key to adaptive swim lessons.
Times will be based on individual preference.
This class will offer a time to enjoy the pool with supervision. Some pool time will be spent on guided exercises and other time spent to increase mobility while in the water. Classes will begin at 1 p.m. on Fridays.
