Special Warriors is a YMCA outreach program that gives individuals with an intellectual and/or developmental disability access to classes and activities that encourage self-sufficiency, socialization and staying active — all qualities that help them build critical relationships with their typically functioning peers.


Special Warriors builds each participant’s developmental assets, personal strengths, self-confidence and other cognitive and non-cognitive skills through sports, swim, movement classes and more. Special Warriors offers parents the security of knowing their child is in a safe, structured and nurturing environment.

During the summer, Special Warriors moves to the pool for aquabilities class! Aquabilities class is a structured water aerobics program for individuals with special needs, designed to increase muscle strength, flexibility, and coordination while building confidence in the water.
