There are lots of great reasons the JCC is known for swimming. Members of all ages stay cool in the summer in our outdoor swimming pools and remain active in the winter months at the Uptown JCC's indoor pool with water workouts, adult lap swim, and swim lessons for all ages. Enjoy all that the aquatics department offers -- water aerobics, personal aqua training, swim lessons, lifeguard classes, the JCC Dolphins Swim Team, and so much more!
Access to outdoor pool facilities is included in Gold & Silver memberships. The indoor pool is reserved for adults with Universal Gold membership; children may enter this pool only during swim classes and swim lessons.
