Adaptive Programs

As we emerge from COVID restrictions, group classes are on pause while we assess our operations to ensure we are functioning in the most efficient way possible.

The Rose Bowl Aquatics Center offers several programs to meet the aquatic therapy and wellness needs of our clients with disabilities. We are here to ensure that our patrons receive the highest quality instruction and benefits from all we have to offer. Inclusion, consistency, and progress are the hallmarks of our therapeutic programs. Our programs address the needs of our patrons of all ages and abilities. Water is a great equalizer amongst our diverse community and we want everyone to be able to enjoy the water safely. Our goal is to provide quality swim lessons and aquatic therapy programs to our patrons


We offer private lessons for our clients whose needs would be better met by one on one instruction. Private lessons allow our instructors to tailor

lessons to their individual client’s needs. Semi-Private lessons are available for up to two individuals who come from the same household and are of similar skill levels.

 Private Lessons:

Instructor-to-swimmer ratio: 1:1

Cost: $42 per 30 minute lesson, $84 per 60 minute lesson

 Semi-Private Lessons:

Instructor-to-swimmer ratio: 1:2

Cost: $25 per individual per 30-minute lesson

***All group classes are suspended until further notice***
