Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons (Individual, Group, and Baby Seal Swim School)
Learning to swim is more than just learning how to survive in the water.  It is about your child gaining confidence and independence.  Learning to swim is even in the Talmud as one of the things that a parent must teach their child.  At the J we offer many opportunities for your child to learn this valuable skill.  There are private lessons that can be taught one-on-one or with up to three kids in a group.  The time is arranged by you and the instructor.  Group lessons are held twice a week August-November, and Baby Seal Swim School is available for ECLC enrolled students 9 months-5 yrs. old.  Dates and times vary.

Private Swim Lessons

I love the JCC and it is really my home away from home. I workout there almost every day and the instructors are so knowledgeable. Everyone of the staff members make you feel so welcome.
