A new Special Olympics swim program!

Hope everyone is having a super day!

I’m looking for some advice today.

Since the broken leg, I’ve had a lot of spare time plus I’ve been able to go to my Special Olympics Swim Team (Go Fergus Phantoms!). Since I have all of this extra time, I’ve decided to make some changes to our adapt program. The adapt end is for our non (traditional) competitive swimmers. Those who are still learning to swim or still working on swimming independently. 

I’m looking for ideas for activities to do with my athletes in the pool. If you were sending your child or person you support to this program, what would you want to see? If you’re an athlete; what kind of activities would you want to do? If you’ve coached; what did you do? any main skills you focused on?

Any ideas would be awesome! 

Please pass this along to anyone you think would have some input and check us out on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Stories-from-the-Sandbox/252057948257316

Have an awesome rest of your day! 🙂
