JCC Learn to Swim Program

The JCC’s Learn to Swim Program is designed to help your child learn skills from bubble blowing all the way to stroke refinement. This will include safety skills in, on, and around the water. As your child progresses through our program, they will learn specific skills that will help them advance through the five different class levels. Here at the JCC we never let our student-to-instructor ratio exceed 4 to 1 for Levels I-V.

Special care is taken to ensure that each student is in the appropriate class for their skill level. All of our instructors have been trained to teach safely and effectively. JCC swim lessons are a great foundation to begin a lifetime passion for fitness and love for swimming. Our philosophy in teaching our swimmers is to make their experience fun while challenging them to stretch beyond their comfort zone. We often see that the children are excited to learn and rarely want to get out of the pool when their class is completed.

Regardless of your swimming skill level, we have several classes designed to ensure your progression. Our experienced staff is passionate in helping you reach your goal, whether it is feeling comfortable in the water, cutting time on your laps, or preparing for a triathlon.

The JCC provides group and private lessons for all ages and abilities. See the JCC Aquatics Guide for detailed information about group class levels, session pricing and more.
