Youth Aquatics


Our youth aquatic classes are structured for children 6 years old and up with each lesson 40 minutes in length combining skill instruction with fun. To ensure a quality and safe lesson, there is a ratio of one instructor to a maximum of eight students and the classes are taught in our big pool with the exception of part of our Youth Level 1 classes will be held in both the teaching and big pool.

Don’t wait to register! The JCC’s swimming classes fill up fast! Based on the American Red Cross’ most recent guidelines, our program adheres to the American Red Cross skill level advancement requirements. Progression to new levels is based on mastering a pre-established set of skills. Lifeguards and instructors are fully trained and certified in American Red Cross swim instruction and water safety techniques. Pre-class evaluations for appropriate level placement will be conducted as needed. End-of-the-session report cards keep parents informed on their child’s progress highlighting areas for improvement and successes.
