Swim Team

What would you do if your community gave up on your child? In New Jersey, the parents of one boy on the autism spectrum took matters into their own hands. They formed a competitive swim team, recruiting diverse teens on the spectrum and training them with high expectations and zero pity. What happens next alters the course of the boys' lives. Swim Team chronicles the extraordinary rise of the Jersey Hammerheads, capturing a moving quest for inclusion, independence and a life that feels winning.

 

"Eye-opening, thoughtful, inspiring..."

-- Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

 

"...an exceptional documentary on what it means to come together for a common goal under extraordinary circumstances."

-- Anne-Katrin Titze, Eye For Film

 

"Many swimmers, coaches, and teams are hungry for the next inspiring, heart-wrenching film to come along and make them laugh, cry, and shout “KICK!” at the screen. Now your wishes have been fulfilled."

-- Hannah Hecht, Swim Swam

 

"These are the important narratives that bring to life the experiences of those living on the spectrum and their families and that help provide a feeling of community, empathy and hope."

--Kristen Barnfield, VP, Easterseals
