Geaux Strong Program

Geaux Strong is instructed by a staff pediatric physical therapist and physical therapy assistant in the lap pool or warm water therapy pool, depending on the child's needs. Children who are not independent in the water will have a "shadow," or trained volunteer, throughout each session. All children will be screened by a physical therapist prior to registration to determine whether they meet criteria for class participation.

A primary goal of this class is to build independence; therefore, parents are not allowed on the pool deck. However, moms may purchase a $20, eight-day pass for use of the Fitness Club during class time.

This class is designed to improve:

  • Independence
  • Strength
  • Coordination
  • Endurance
  • Breath Support


Geaux Strong is supported by a generous grant from ForeKids! Foundation.
