Film Screening: Swim Team

February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

We are excited to be partnering with the ReelAbilities: Houston Film & Arts Festival to bring the film, Swim Team, to HCRJ on February 25! In this film, parents of a boy on the autism spectrum form a competitive swim team, recruiting other teens on the spectrum and training them with high expectations and zero pity. Swim Team chronicles the extraordinary rise of three diverse young athletes, capturing a moving quest for inclusion, independence and a life that feels like winning. Watch a preview here.

Three representatives from Avondale House will lead our discussion after the film: Philip Golden, Development Director, Becky Ingalls, Principal/Education Specialist and Tarah Bowser Ott, Behavior Analyst. Avondale House provides services and resources to children and adults with autism.

Popcorn and drinks will be provided. To RSVP, please contact Justin at 713-782-4162 or admin@hcrj.org.
