Adaptive Swim Program for People with Disabilities

The Adaptive Swim program offers aquatic exercise therapy that ranges from gentle water walking to aerobic-type exercise which improves range of motion, flexibility, mobility, muscle tone, coordination, focus and strength, as well as swim instruction that focuses on becoming comfortable in the water and learning basic swimming and safety skills.

Due to the current national lifeguard shortage, all swim programs, including adaptive swim, have been cancelled for summer 2022. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Our pools will remain open this summer for general swim. Pool hours will remain the same: 11: 00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Please visit our Outdoor Pools page to find a public pool near you.


To ensure that everyone has equal access to the Adaptive Swim program, registration for the program takes place by lottery. Please select a program below to enter the lottery.
