Inclusive program: Angelfish swimming classes

Beatty Park has developed an award-winning inclusive and integrated swimming program for people with disability. These classes are provided at the same rate as our mainstream classes.

The Angelfish program provides swimmers with a lifelong skill that enables them to participate in a range of aquatic activities. Initial tuition is provided on a 1:1 ratio where the instructor assesses readiness for integration into a mainstream class, which is achieved gradually. Once integrated, the instructor continues to provide support in the mainstream class.

At Beatty Park, we have a large range of specialised equipment and communication resources, as well as appropriately trained instructors. Contact us today to learn more about our Angelfish program.
