Swimming

BlazeSports Swim programs are for youth ages 6 to 22 years old with physical disabilities who want to learn how to swim or learn to train/compete. Together our swim coaches, Fred Lamback and Jaccy Billeter have more than 40 years of experience as a swim coach and will provide expert instruction, along with other BlazeSports Certified Water Safety Instructors, as your child develops in the pool.

  •  The Learn to Swim program will help your child develop confidence in the water, pool safety skills, and the basics for freestyle and backstroke.
  • The Learn to Train/Compete program builds on skill learned in the Learn to Swim program and will help your child build endurance. In this advanced group, your child will continue to master freestyle and backstroke, as well as learn how to do breaststroke, butterfly, starts, and flip turns.

No experience is required to participate in the swim program.

In addition to practice, participants interested in competition will have an opportunity to compete with the BlazeSports Swim Team in local, regional and national swim meets.
