Special Olympics Swim Team Tulane student and swim instructor Kait Simpson is starting, in conjunction with Tulane swim team members, a Special Olympics swim team here in New Orleans. They will hold three practices this spring to grow their membership, with the program getting into full swing this coming fall. The aim of these three practices is simply to get the kids acclimatized, pair them with a coach that they can have consistently, and get them having fun in the water! After these spring sessions, they plan to establish a training plan and divide up the athletes based on swimming levels/age. they hope to bring the team to a competition at the end of the fall season. As of right now there are no costs! Come with a smile and a swim suit ready to have fun :)Athletes of ALL AGES are invited to join (but aimed more at kids). The first practice is coming up this Saturday morning at the Tulane Reily pool.
