“I cannot say enough good things about Miss Janine, and the Adaptive Swim program at Worcester Fitness!

This class was exactly what I was looking for for my daughter. Janine provides a no-pressure environment, where she meets the kids where they are to help them improve their swimming skills and feel comfortable in the water.

Using fun and engaging activities, songs, and toys, Janine has helped Brynn gain confidence in her abilities.

Although it took Brynn a few classes to warm up, Janine’s positive energy and bubbly personality quickly won her over, and she genuinely looks forward to swimming class every week.”

Our Adapted Swim Program is designed to provide your child who may learn differently with the least restrictive environment while in a group setting to enhance their swimming techniques.
The lessons include songs, free play, and instruction with a variety of assistive devices. These will help introduce them to the water without fear, improve upon skills they already know, and provide a fun outlet for energy.

All children should have the access to quality swimming lessons and we aim to provide that service for them in the most comfortable and appropriate way for their individual needs, meeting them at their ability levels and creating opportunities to grow.

The Adapted Swim Program also provides private swim lessons for anyone who may not feel comfortable in a group setting or who might need:
  • one on one instruction
  • more time to process and practice
  • less noise
  • have best practices/learning tools/behavior plans that are used at home or school that would benefit them in the water
Private lessons are great for giving adequate time for the swimmer to become familiar with the instructor and the water. The personalized instruction and attention allows them to build a relationship that will only assist them in comfortability, confidence, and skill.

Please contact our Swim Director, Kat Butterfield, with any questions.
