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
