YMCA Offers Free Swim Program for Children with Special Needs

Thanks 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 three to 12 with special needs.

Classes are scheduled to begin on Saturday, Jan. 21 and will take place in the YMCA’s 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.

Anyone interested in participating in this special needs program may contact the YMCA at 203-869-1630, ext. 306 or email Betsy Culeman at bculeman@gwymca.org.
