Fairfax County Park Authority Adaptive Aquatics
"The Park Authority's award-winning Adapted Aquatics is an individualized swimming and water activity program for customers with physical and developmental disabilities. This success-oriented program targets individuals who do not currently meet the prerequisites for participating in an inclusive environment. The program is designed to develop basic swim skills in a structured setting with one-on-one support from trained volunteers.
Students may register for:
Adapted Aquatics Group Classes – These lessons are geared for swimmers that need 1 on1 support because of any one or combination of the following: physical assistance, behavioral, sensory, cognitive, expressive or receptive language needs. Red Cross instructors and trained volunteers lead participants through a range of water experience that encourage independence in the water, socializing and specific swimming or exercise skills and routines.
Please note that family members may be requested to assist in the water if volunteers are not available.
Group lessons – These lessons are offered at all ReCenter pools. Flexible scheduling is available. Classes can also be arranged for school groups and group homes. There is a minimum of 5 swimmers needed to register. Groups should be prepared to help keep a small ratio of 3 to 1."
