Champion Swim Lessons (Private Swim Sessions for Champion Swimmers)

Private swim lessons for our Champion special needs swimmers. Champion Swim lessons offer swim lessons with 'Swim Angelfish' instructors specially trained in overcoming roadblocks commonly seen in children with sensory processing disorders and other disabilities. Most swim lessons start as one-on-one so each child has individual attention to promote in and around the water. As the swimmer progresses, swimmers may be paired up with another swimmer for a semi-private lesson. Group size would always remain small in order to ensure safety. Please email: to schedule a swim time or for additional information.
