YMCA of Greenwich Offers Free Swim Program for Children with Special Needs

YMCA OF GREENWICH, Greenwich Free PressThanks to a $10,000 grant from the Abilis Community Foundation, the YMCA of Greenwich will be offering a free six week course designed to teach basic water safety and swimming concepts to children ages 3-12 with special needs.

Classes are scheduled to begin on Saturday, January 21, 2017 and will take place in the YMCA’s historic warm water pool.

Each class will include information that will grow a child’s water safety knowledge. The weekly lesson plans are custom designed to develop the aquatic skills that help to keep participants safe in, on and around the water.  Our instructors factor in your child’s interests to help keep the learning fun.
Anyone interested in participating in this special needs program may contact the YMCA at 203-869-1630. 306 or email Betsy Culeman at bculeman@gwymca.org.
