What it is

We offer two, 30 minute lessons on the same evening. Group learning starts off the lesson and then you work with a volunteer on skill development. Each lesson ends with free time in the warm water pool. Instruction and guidance provided by the YMCA instructor along with one-on-one attention our volunteers give, is what makes these lessons special.

Who it is for

Adaptive swim lessons are designed for children and adults with disabilities who need a one-on-one learning environment.

Good to know

Adaptive swim lessons are designed to be short and sweet. The lesson format allows swimmers to receive special attention from our volunteers along with the support of specific instruction from YMCA instructors.
