We are looking for volunteers to work with our aquatic special need groups. The responsibility of the volunteer is to assist special need swimmers in staying safe in and around the water. While both programs work on teaching and developing swimming skills, the volunteer is expected to motivate and facilitate the process of achieving progressive goals. 

The following are the days, times, and the descriptions of the programs: 

Saturday 12-1 PM

  • Adapted Aquatics | ages 3 – Adult
  • This one hour program provides individuals who are physically or intellectually challenged the opportunity to use the pool for exercise, learn basic swimming skills, be part of a social group, and play games while having fun in a safe aquatic environment. 

Sunday 1:15 PM - 3:30 PM (three classes)

  • S.N.S.L. | ages 3 – 6, ages 7-11, and ages 12+
  • Our special needs swim lesson (S.N.S.L.) provides 45 minutes of instruction provided by our trained staff and volunteers. This program is designed to teach and improve each student’s swimming skills while working in a group environment to improve their focus, comfort, and overall understanding of safety in the pool.
