Swimming for Children at Karin Dom

27 February 2023

Dear parents,

one of the great advantages of the new Karin Dom complex, which we are proud of, is our swimming pool which complements the physiotherapy for children. Our team expanded with three swimming coaches who help children enjoy free movement in the water and practice their motor skills in a fun and gentle way with the help of water.

One of the favorite places for fun and games is now the 4×9 m swimming pool, with water temperature of 33°C, which is designed for children with mobility restrictions and equipped with a modern Hoist system – a functional and adapted system for moving children and people with disabilities, which allows more independent movement from the sanitary facilities and the changing room to the pool and back.

Currently, Karin Dom, supported by projects, donors and regular campaigns, manages to offer free swimming lessons to 43 children who use therapeutic services in the complex.

Karin Dom offers the possibility of adapted swimming from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Fees for individual sessions are:

  • With a voucher for 10 visits: BGN 200
  • One-time visit: BGN 25
  • Payment is made by bank transfer to the following account in Bank DSK AD, BIC: STSABGSF, IBAN: BG29STSA93001506068419 or through a POS terminal on site at Karin Dom.

For the time range from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., for more information and to register in the schedule, contact coach: Tanya Hristova at: 0882 412 319.

*Swimming lessons have a duration of 30 minutes, and the schedule is coordinated with the coaches on: 052/302 518 for classes until 5:30 p.m. or in person with the coach for classes after 5:30 p.m.

For the time range from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Karin Dom provides an opportunity for other qualified coaches and lifeguards to use the pool. Individual or group classes can be held for children and youth up to 18 years old. For more information call: 052/302 518.

Activities in water have long term conducive effects on children’s health and development, such as:

  • improve appetite and sleep;
  • improve coordination and balance;
  • build a self-preservation instinct in water;
  • positively affect the psycho-emotional state;
  • reduce muscle tone in neurological conditions;
  • improve the skeletal-muscular system, the range of movement (congenital equinovarus), the volume of the chest (pectus excavatum), in orthopedic conditions;
  • provide multisensory stimulation (vestibular, tactile and proprioceptive) in case of sensory impairments (deaf, blind);
  • improve postural control;
  • improve gross motor skills.
