Adaptive Swimming Lessons and Water Safety

The risk of drowning is twice as high for students with disabilities. To increase swimming safety for students with disabilities, Blackwell’s exceptional students participate in Detroit Swim, Thursdays, 12:45- 2:15 pm, at the Downtown Detroit, Y.M.C.A.  Our students receive swimming instructions from certified lifeguards with emphasis on water safety and exercising to increase their muscular strength and endurance.
