Swimming on the Spectrum

AFC offers two popular swim programs. Swimming on the Spectrum, a four-week program, is for children with autism to learn to be comfortable and safe in and around water. Families appreciate water programs as their child enjoys dedicated swim time with volunteers helping them increase their swim skills. AFC also offers a four-week Family Swim, where the whole family can relax and enjoy water fun together.

Family Swim

Come enjoy family swim time at the Star Hill Family Athletic Center! Families will be able to enjoy the water together, swim, play and just plain have FUN! This is free swim time for the whole family, siblings included. One adult must register for every two participants and be in the water. This is an all ages event! Swim diapers are allowed!
