What is Adaptive Aquatics and Gym Kids?

Adaptive Aquatics

Participate in gym and pool activities with children who have special needs to help them develop their cognitive, motor, and social skills. Help the students improve their autonomy by involving them in creative and enjoyable activities during their time on campus.

How do I get involved?

  1. Email to let the leaders know you're interested in participating. You may attend the activity even if you have not received a reply.
  2. Meet the group at the RB before the activity to get directions (after you have completed the online training mentioned below.)
  3. If you have questions, you may contact a program director using the information found in the Contact Info tab.

Volunteer Commitment:

Volunteers commit to 1-2 hours a week.

This program usually runs Fall and Winter Semesters every Thursday and Friday from 11:00-11:50 am. Meet in Gym 156 or at the pool deck of the Richards Building.


Please complete this mandatory 25-minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with this program.
