SWIM LESSONS - Summer 2019
 

May 3, 2019: The Annapolis Valley Chapter of Autism NS is pleased to announce that it will be partnering this summer with the Recreation Dept. at the Town of Kentville, to offer private swim lessons for children, teens and adults with autism. Thanks to a very generous grant from Unity for Autism, these lessons will be FREE of charge.

Weekly private lessons will take place at the Kentville outdoor pool on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The pool and changeroom will be closed to the public during these periods and a maximum of two private lessons will take place in the pool at one time. All abilities and ages (4 and up) are welcome; if you're looking to learn to swim or already know how to swim but want to improve your technique or if your swim abilities fall somewhere in-between, you're invited to register.
