SWIM-ABILITY

Swim-Ability participants work towards goals set by the participants along with family members and caregivers. With the goals and capabilities of each individual participant in mind, staff works through an assessment process and develops a program plan. Family members/caregivers are encouraged to take part alongside the participant if they so desire. There is a maximum of 6 participants in the pool during a session. The YMCA can provide 1:1 staff support and have additional support staff on the pool deck based upon participant need and ability.
