Sportable’s aquatic programming will provide a safe environment for participants to successfully learn a variety of skills and achieve their personal goals. After initial assessment, athletes will be placed into one of two levels of programming. Adapted Aquatics will help participants achieve therapeutic goals and become comfortable in the water.
