A gym and swim program for children with special needs, who could benefit from a 1-to-1 or 2-to-1 student-instructor ratio. A half-hour gym session helps to develop gross motor skills and a positive self-image in a non-competitive environment. A half-hour swimming lesson follows the gym session.

Adapted swim (Ages 3 +)

These are programs for children with special needs who could benefit from a 1-on-1 ratio.
