Swim Possible provides lessons that are customized for students who need a different, gentler approach to learning how to swim.
 
We work with students of all ages, abilities, and learning styles, who have a variety of goals. Many students develop a relationship with their instructor that can last for years as they build their skills and confidence in the water.
 
In particular, students on the Autism spectrum are naturally attracted to the water. Though the risk of drowning is high for this population, we find that swimming lessons are centering and soothing for these students, while keeping them safe.

Learners we serve:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Anxiety or fear of water 

  • Adult learners/older youth beginners  

  • Attention issues 

  • Physical learning differences

  • Down’s Syndrome

  • Anyone who wants to feel safer in the water!

 

Learners’ goals include:

  • Developing a sense of comfort in/around the water

  • Learning basic water safety skills

  • Improving overall physical fitness

  • Supporting development/therapy goals

  • Learning to swim/learning strokes

  • Refining strokes/preparing for competitive swimming

  • More confidence in and out of the water!

If you have swim lesson needs not met by other conventional lessons, Swim Possible is the place to be! We don't go by structured "levels" or "graduating". We base our lessons simply around your specific abilities, goals, and needs to provide you with confidence and safety in the water. 

All of our instructors are well trained in water safety, swim strokes and are certified through Swim Angelfish. Swimmers with Autism (who many thought could not learn to swim) have learned to swim with us, and in the process increased their verbal, fitness, social, and safety skills. Other students have gone on to successfully participate in Special Olympics events and other competitive swimming teams. We have also helped adults (many of our students' parents) who were non-swimmers to be comfortable and keep their families safe around water.
