This class is designed for youth and teens (age 6 to 14) that have disabilities and benefit from a specialized program. The instructor is a qualified water safety instructor (WSI) and experienced in making adaptations for the swimmer with special needs. If a WSI is unavailable our lifeguard staff will conduct a leisure swim session for participants using games and water activities to promote physical exercise, socialization, and independence in the water. Those using a wheelchair are encouraged to use our pool life for transfer into/and out of the water.
Anyone whose ability restricts them from using the men's and women's locker rooms independently is welcome to use the bathroom and changing area located directly off the pool. A south side accessible entrance is available for pool use. As we provide an experienced water safety instructor and a special needs aide to assist in the pool, we ask that you provide a volunteer if your child needs further 1:1 assistance. Class limit is 8.
