Swim Level Information:

Intro to Water (Adaptive): This program is specially designed for kids with disabilities to learn essential water safety skills and build confidence in the water. Through fun and engaging activities, we'll focus on teaching basic swimming techniques and skills that will prepare them for success in swimming lessons. Our staff will provide a supportive environment where every child can learn at their own pace and feel empowered and comfortable in the water. Join us as we make splashes, laughter and unforgettable memories while prioritizing safety and fun! This program is not a Red Cross Learn to Swim Program. 

Parent Child: Parents will be in the water with their children to get them acclimated to the water. The participants will move around the pool while playing with toys, singing songs, and practice the basics of swimming. The comfort level for each child will vary and will not be pressured into doing anything the parent or child is not comfortable with.
