SNUGS (Special Needs Undergraduate Swim Lessons)

SNUGS (Special Needs Undergraduate Swim Lessons)

UPDATED: January 3, 2019

We believe in swim lessons as a safety imperative for disabled children, as well as a socially beneficial bonding activity for both the instructors and swimmers. Therefore, SNUGS was founded and is run by Yale students who provide swim lessons free of charge to local disabled/special needs children. Swim lessons are one-on-one and catered specifically to each child. All instructors are trained and extremely dedicated to our cause. Events occur every other Sunday afternoon at Yale's Payne Whitney gym. Please contact us for more information and to sign up!
