Aquatic Special Needs Program: Learning to swim can be an empowering and exciting experience. Our group swim lessons and individual exercise time provides an emphasis on strengths and unique attributes of each swimmer. The AbilityFirst aquatic program for children and adults with disabilities focuses on water education, developing water safety and swimming skills.
Warm Water Aquatics Program: AbilityFirst operates three warm water pools open to the community which offer warm water exercise classes, ideal for promoting joint flexibility, range of motion and muscle tone.
Open Swim times are offered to the entire community at some of our pool locations. All are supervised by staff trained in CPR, first aid, life-saving and water safety. Open Swim is only available to AbilityFirst aquatic program participants who have filled out an application.
Each of the following locations offer aquatic special needs programs.
