Adaptive Aquatics

Salt Lake county provides several aquatic opportunities for individuals with disabilities:

Inclusive Swim Lessons

You can register for swim lessons at any of the Salt Lake County Pools and make an inclusion request.  Reasonable accommodations will be provided based on need and may include providing an aid to help your child participate in the swim lessons, allowing a parent or sibling to be in the water, or using additional teaching tools.

If inclusion is not the best setting for your child, email to discuss placement and accommodations.

There is no additional fees for accommodations so please don't hesitate to ask!


Otters Swim Club

Learn to swim or improve your stroke!  Join the Otters Swim Club which was developed for youth 3 - 18 years with Autism spectrum disorder or intellectual disabilities.

Otters is year round in 4-week sessions at various pools around the county.  Ask your local pool when the next session starts and if there's not a group currently running, request that the pool start one.


Adaptive Swim Club

The Adaptive Swim Club is for adults and youth with physical, visual, or intellectual disabilities.  An adaptive aquatics instructor will lead the group through drills, stroke refinement, building endurance, skills to increase lifelong health and wellness, and the opportunity to engage in social interaction with peers.  This club has the option to swim competitively.

Adaptive Swim Club is year round in 4-week sessions, held at Holladay Lions Rec Center
