Just For You Swim
Just For You swim lessons are adaptive lessons for those with special needs led by a qualified instructor. Water is very calming on sensory overloads, and for those with physical disabilities, the water provides a weightless environment that is often very freeing. These lessons unlock the benefits and enjoyment of water, often giving the swimmers a new lease on life. Available for ages 6-14.
