Tide Water Adaptive Aquatics Center offers 20-minute private (one-on-one) lessons, as well as a swim team (30-minute group practice), specially designed for children with challenges.
Participants sign up for an 8-week Session and swim once per week: either Thursday evenings or Sunday mornings, depending on the location you choose. We ask new Adaptive swimmers to sign up for private lessons and encourage proficient swimmers to join the team.
Our instructors are highly trained and dedicated to ensuring water safety, building water confidence, and fostering a lifelong love of swimming. We aim to offer a fun, safe environment for a positive swimming experience and encourage students to build confidence by helping non-swimmers confront fear head-on.
We are an LTP for Special Olympics and are diligently working toward becoming a part of the Adapt2Acheive program for Disabled Sports USA, as well as Autism Speaks.
Swimmers qualify for the Adaptive program based on their diagnoses. Knowing each child’s specific challenge(s) allows us to tailor our private lessons to the swimmer’s individual strengths, needs, and limitations.
We serve children with a variety of special needs, including (but not limited to):
Adaptive costs $50 per Session. That price covers all 8 weeks of the Session, as well as an Adaptive T-shirt. Payment is due in-full at the time of registration.
Registration for our 2017 Spring Session is still OPEN!
Our Adaptive program is expanding rapidly! So we switched to Active.com, an online registration/payment system, to keep up with the increasing number of participants.
