We believe that swim instruction is based on the motor skills of swimming (kicking, stroking, and rhythmic breathing). In addition, and more importantly, we feel that our swimmers need to mentally understand the properties of water; the how's and why's. We feel it is paramount to develop the whole person mentally and physically. Understanding the properties of water helps the swimmer with the readiness to swim. The instructor to swimmer ratio is 1:1-1:2 and instructors are trained to meet the needs of all individuals.
This is why our participants, in addition to learning personal safety, stroke technique, and rescue skills, also learn how we float, why we need to have certain body positions, why we breathe rhythmically, and how we achieve balance in the water; just to name a few of the things we teach.
The adapted swim program is aimed at promoting life-saving swim safety and basic swimming skills for children with and without Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. The instructor to swimmer ratio is 1:1-1:2 and instructors are trained to meet the needs of all individuals. We recognize that no two children are the same so after you register, we will reach out to each family individually prior to starting lesson in order to develop the best possible plan for your child.
