our method works!

SwimPossible 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.

All of our instructors are well trained in water safety, swim strokes and adaptive swim techniques. 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. 

With SwimPossible you aren't just learning water safety and swim skills, you're also part of a family. Each session is ended with a participant gathering including a family open swim, dinner, certificates for our swimmers to celebrate their progress, door prizes and more! We want you to not only learn swimming but make connections along the learning  journey.
