Accommodating Needs

Swimmers with Accommodating Needs
These group lessons  offer the our lowest instructor to student ratio with 1 instructor for every three swimmers to accommodate students with autism and those needing additional support.  The lower ratio will help to increase the level of repetitiveness as they focus on basic techniques such as kicking, bubbles and introduction to freestyle. This class is designed to ease children with accommodating needs into swimming and better prepare them for aquatic competition, recreation, and leadership.
1 instructor : 3 swimmers

PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

Private Swim Lessons are offered all year round. The one-on-one experience is perfect for children who have difficulty with a group environment or who may desire extra attention on their swim skills. Teachers are also able to better concentrate on the individual need of the child and cater the lessons to that specific need. All ages welcome.
