San Jose State University - Timpany Center Swim Lessons 2019

Lightning Bolts - Adapted Swim Lessons

In addition to our general swim lessons, the Timpany Center offers adapted swim lessons as well! Adapted lessons are designed for children or adults with any type or severity of disability (physical or cognitive). In our adapted swim programs we work one-on-one with each person developing an aquatics program that best suits that individual’s needs. Our adapted classes are taught by San Jose State University students who have undergone extensive training in how to teach adapted aquatics. Most of our instructors are either in the Adapted Physical Activity program at San Jose State University or have graduated from this program. Our classes focus on overall fitness, body awareness, water safety, swimming technique, and most importantly FUN!

*The Adapted Membership can only be applied by the Swim Lesson Coordinator once an adapted information sheet has been completed and submitted to Once the Adapted Membership has been applied to your account, you will become eligible to register for adapted, private lessons, aka Lightning Bolts. 
Lessons are 35 minutes, one day a week. All general Swim School and Stroke School classes will have a maximum of four children per class.
