JCC Swim School

Lessons at the Uptown JCC are designed utilizing the guidelines of the American Red Cross Learn to Swim Program. Instruction focuses on providing a safe and nurturing environment where each swimmer is encouraged and challenged, but never pressured or forced to participate. All lessons are implemented and taught by highly skilled and trained American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors.

What Our Members Say:

"We did semi-private with Marianne. She helped my daughter build her confidence and challenge herself to make it across the pool! Group with my twins, they loved the songs incorporated into the sessions and the special attention they received." - Lesley Brown, JCC Member 

"We've loved having our boys in swim lessons with Kat and Jordyn. Swim lessons during camp were a great start, but the private lessons really honed their skills. Kat and Jordyn were fantastic at keeping our boys engaged and learning in a no-pressure environment with tons of fun. We were so impressed with how quickly the boys became proficient in their swimming and would definitely recommend the lessons to others." - Rachel Bartkowiak, JCC Member
