Adapted Aquatic Programs

The City of Port Coquitlam is proud to offer pool space to two organizations that run adapted aquatic opportunities for children who require additional support in the water.

Tidal Wave Aquatics

Tidal Wave Aquatics is an exciting and unique program offered by KidsFirst Physio. While the positive impact of physical exercise in the buoyancy and resistance of water is well documented, we have added an extra plus to our program. Under the personal supervision of Brenda Horton, B.S.R. P.T. (reg), MCPA, trained youth assistants work directly with program participants in the water to meet their prescribed needs.

Participants must undergo a physical assessment to determine need and an appropriate physiotherapy plan prior to approval for the program.
