What is SwimAbilities?

SwimAbilities is a 4-level swimming program that is designed to break down swimming skills into small manageable components with logical progressions and lots of opportunities for success.

The program is geared for children ages 3-16, with special needs, who need additional support to achieve their beginning swimmer goals and to increase their safety, independence, and enjoyment in and around the water.

Each class is 45 minutes long with 30 minutes class time, and 15 minutes transition time for play and getting out of the pool.
We chose to be one of the first facilities to implement this program because it fits with our values of Wellness, Safety, Partnership and it also fills a programming gap for an important part of the Community.

A parent or guardian is required to assist in the water.
