The JCC’s Aquatics Department offers a great selection of swim programs and instruction for all ages. From our baby swim class, kids group and private swim lessons to our distinguished award winning Stingrays swim team, lifeguard training program, and a selection of adult water aerobics classes and lap swimming, we offer something for every age and experience level.

All of our water safety instructors are American Red Cross (ARC) certified to teach the ARC Learn to Swim Program. Children learn proper swim techniques as well as how to be safe in an aquatic environment.
