S.T.A.R.S. (Sharing Therapies And Realizing Self Strengths) Swim Lessons for children with special needs group children together based on similar abilities and guide them through swim lessons in a smaller staff-to-student ratio than traditional swim classes. To select the appropriate class for your child, please see class descriptions on our Swim Lessons for Kids page. For children who require individual attention, please inquire about our Private Swim Lessons.

    This class is designed to mirror a typical Pike, Pickerel, Eel or Polliwog YMCA swim class, with the ultimate goal of moving participants to a traditional swim class. 1:3 ratio.
