1-pool lift
Aquatic Lift

Swimming recreational opportunities are now more available to people with disabilities at all public swimming pools, thanks in large measure to a grant from the AWS Foundation. A PAL-portable aquatic lift, placed at each pool, can transfer  individuals from the side and place them into the water.

New ADA guidelines required a lift at each of public pool, including McMillen, Memorial and Northside. The PAL-portable aquatic lift (battery powered) is a sturdy, useful piece of equipment for use by people with disabilities.

This model is ADA compliant, lifts 300 lbs., is completely portable so that it can be put away when not in use, and has a 240 degree rotation to ensure a safe transfer area.

Open Swim for Disabled Youth

Open swims for children with disabilities or special needs will be Mondays from 5:15-6:15 p.m. beginning June 9. No pre-registration is required. The swim is FREE. Please check in before entering the pool. A parent must accompany each child in the water.

Just got home awhile ago from our last day of swim lessons at Northside. We did 3 of the 4 sessions this summer and I am so thrilled with how much my kids have learned! My daughter went from terrified of getting her face wet to diving for rings at the bottom of the pool, jumping off the diving board and using the water... slide by herself. The teachers at Northside are amazing and I can't thank them enough for helping my kids learn to love the water! Rachelle B.
I just wanted to thank your for the special needs swim at Northside pool! It really helped us a ton. It was a hot summer and taking some kiddos to the pool can be tough on lifeguards, the other pool patrons and the families. That hour that you gifted us with was amazing. Not only did we cool off - but we got to meet other kids and parents that face some of the same challenges that we do. So THANKS! Elizabeth L. S. 

I wanted to send you a little note, thanking you for all you taught Alexis in our 2 week swim lesson.  At the time I did not know how much she was really learning, besides becoming more comfortable in the water and learning how to balance herself when in the water.
Well we went on our family vacation to Myrtle Beach and we were in the water a lot.  And to my surprise she was doing the things she learned in class.  For example: she was doing her scoops and saying "strawberry, strawberry, strawberry, yum, yum, yum".  This by the way is a new word for her.  She does this all the time in or out of the pool.  It is so cute.  She also was not afraid of the ocean.  She was running in and out.  She loved it.  Another thing was we were swimming in the kiddie pool which was only 1 ft deep and she was climbing out of it like you taught her.  I was amazed.  She was doing her bubbles, jumping in.  I am so glad we were provided the opportunity for Alexis to go to swim lessons and to have you as her swim teacher. I am looking forward to next summer.  Beth E.

Maybe smaller class? Mr. Ben was fantastic! He was great with the kids and incredibly patient. Teachers for level 1 were great as well.   Nicole H.

The session was outstanding, the number of kids per level versus the instructor and helper was outstanding. Alex is awesome with the kids and very knowledgeable. He makes it fun while learning lots. We loved it!   Mrs. Nix
We attended a recent Friday evening swim. The lifeguards were outstanding and truly have to be on their toes because of the crowds. I was very impressed by their ability and professionalism. You should be commended.   Mrs. Nix
Great personal attention to each child and patience with my 2 year old.   Emma A.
We are very grateful for Nancy and Mitch getting our kids started. Neither of our girls have had lessons before this year. They are thrilled and so are we! Thank you!  Jen M.
