What is Adaptive Aquatics?
One of our oldest inclusion programs, Adaptive Aquatics has been changing lives at the Springfield JCC for more than a decade. The program runs on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays with 1:1 student to instructor ratios.
Participants have access to our outstanding aquatics facility, ranked at the top for indoor swimming venues in Western Massachusetts. Our facility includes a heated six-lane pool, a mid-sized wading pool, and specially designed family changing rooms with showers and toilets that comfortably accommodate all participants and their caregivers. Entry to the pool includes stairs, ladder, and handicap lift access.
We extend a warm thank you to Autism Speaks!. Through their generous grant, we have been able to teach more children water safety skills, and give them a fun & safe environment to learn in.
