Ability360 Narwhals Youth Swim Team

Ability360 Narwhals Swim Team is part of a program called Breaking Barriers.

Breaking Barriers would not have been possible without a donation from the Thunderbirds Charities, a nonprofit organization funded by money raised at the annual Phoenix Waste Management Open golf tournament. Thunderbirds Charities’ main mission is to improve life for the youth and families in the state of Arizona.

Thanks to the Thunderbirds’ generous donation and belief in our mission at Ability360, this unique program gives youth with disabilities access to sports and adventures that are not always available to them.

The recreational swim team will practice the four main swim strokes; freestyle, breaststroke, butterfly, and backstroke. Individual practice will begin April of each year, if participants are unable to swim independently, and full team practices will start in May and go through the fall. Swim team members will have the opportunity to compete in swim meets against other local teams. Swim team members will receive a swim suit, shirt, swim bag, goggles, towel and swim cap.

Must be ages 5 to 18. Participants must be a member of the facility, there is no additional fee to join the swim team.

To join the team please reach out to our coaches Brittany Bowen at brittanyb@ability360.org or Kyleigh Rubis at kyleighr@ability360.org
