LEEP Special Olympics Aquatics (Swimming) is a great sport for everyone of all skill levels.  Aquatics, unlike other sports, is a life skill that is taught, first, to ensure safety and, secondly, for sports and competition purposes.  Aquatics covers a great variety of swimming skills, from short sprints to longer events and relays, perfect for all ages and ability levels.  

No matter what your skill level is, LEEP will help you improve throughout the swimming season.
