In 2021 we launched the first adaptive swim program designed specifically for children with autism in Virginia Beach.
Since the start of the program, over 40 children have participated in this life-changing program
focused on water safety and basic swim skills for children with autism.
This program would not be possible without the support of our amazing partners at the Sentara Cares Foundation, Swim Angelfish, and the Lynnhaven Swim & Dive Center. We are so grateful for the community partners that made this dream a reality.
