SWIM LESSONS FOR DIVERSE ABILITIES

Swim Lessons for Diverse Abilities (Ages 3-17)

Aquatic exercise is highly recommended for children with diverse abilities. Most children can learn to swim with patient and caring swim instructors. Although the YMCA of Boulder Valley takes an inclusive approach with our standard group lessons, these specific classes strive to give everyone the chance to learn how to swim, no matter what diverse abilities they have. This program is a small group lesson open to children with, but not limited to, ASD, Cerebral Palsy, MS, ADHD and physical limitations. Specialized instruction by qualified staff and volunteers will allow children with physical or cognitive disabilities to develop healthy lifestyles by being active, building confidence, socializing and having fun. At the Y, we provide a safe and caring environment that will open the door to all possibilities.
