We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, December 14, 2019.
MCR-Aquatics is now offering both learn-to-swim and water exercise programs for those with special needs. Our classes are geared for swimmers that need 1 on 1 support because of any one or combination for the following: physical assistance, behavioral, sensory, cognitive, expressive or receptive language needs. Instructors will lead participants through a range of water experiences that encourage independence in the water, socializing and specific swimming or exercise skills and routines. To ensure success in these programs, we do need families/caregivers to commit their assistance. It is important that you arrive and report to your instructor on time and ready to enter the water. On the first day of class, please check in at the front desk and complete the information sheet on the participant. Then head through the locker rooms. There is generally only one Special Needs changing room, so be prepared to wait.
This is a learn-to-swim program for children ages 4 to 15 who have special needs. These classes are taught in a small group environment. Each child will have an assigned volunteer at all times. All participants must fill out and sign the information and release form at the first class. Students are allowed to register for ONLY one (1) class per session. Class size is limited to 8 students.
Parent/Caregiver must enter the water and participate in the class.
