Adaptive Swim School Adaptive group lessons are geared for children with physical or cognitive disabilities. Students will learn stroke techniques, water safety, self-confidence, and teamwork.  Parents, please note that our goal is to ensure that each child has the most successful experience possible and in order to do so the first day of classes will be an assessment of abilities.  There is a possibility that the time of your child’s class may change to the other adaptive time slot if the instructor feels it is a better fit for your child.
