Sugar Sand Park Community Center is hosting a screening of SWIM TEAM, an award-winning feature documentary about a New Jersey YMCA-based, community swim team made up of kids on the autism spectrum. The film follows three of team’s star athletes, boys on the cusp of adulthood, when government services become scarce.
SWIM TEAM is a portrait of diverse American families grappling with the problem of “aging out.” Over the course of a year, SWIM TEAM explores the overwhelming struggles they face and the triumphs they achieve as they strive for independence, inclusion and a life that feels winning.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Lara Stolman, SWIM TEAM offers an inspiring look at the power of community to transcend disability and create hope and opportunities for the future.
This film will be screened at Sugar Sand Park Community Center on Sunday, May 14 at 1:00pm, and is open to the public. Tickets are free, but advance registration is required online only. Space is limited.
