Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play
All or our classes are taught by the professional staff at the Mandell JCC in West Hartford. Each swimmer must be accompanied in the water by a parent or designated adult. If a parent is not comfortable in the water, the Miracle League of CT may be able to assist in finding an adult to help, please contact us if you need assistance by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We currently offer 2 classes see details below for class descriptions. Space is limited in both classes, registration is on a first come first serve basis. It is open to all children with special needs, you do not need to be a Miracle League baseball player or a member of the JCC. The registration fee is $40 for each class, as with all Miracle League of CT programs, we will be happy to offer fee waivers if a family is in need of financial aid. Please email us if you are in need of a fee waiver. All requests will be kept strictly confidential.
