    New Group Swim Lessons!

    We are very excited to launch new Aquatics programming! While there are some similarities to our previous programming, here are some highlights that we're looking forward to sharing with you:

    • Students will receive progress reports each month, which include all level requirements within the age group. Parents will be able to see what their kids have already accomplished and what they are working on and working towards
    • Each level contains practical safety components. Examples include treading water, elementary backstroke, swimming under water and diving to the bottom of the pool
    • Three levels per age group: kids will stay in each level longer, which will promote connections with the instructor and classmates

    Recurring Enrollment for Members and JCC Students
    This is a benefit available exclusively to JCC Fitness Center Members, current Club J students and current Leslie Family Preschool students enrolled in the current session:

    • Your child will automatically be re-registered for their same class each month (pending instructor recommendation)
    • Monthly billing will be charged to the card on file on the 1st of each month
    • You may cancel your enrollment for the following month before the 20th of the current month

    Class Changes and Open Enrollment for Members and JCC Students
    If your child is new to the program or changing classes at the start of the new month, you will need to register on the 23rd of the month for the following month. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Community Enrollment
    For those swimmers who are registered as non-members, you will need to actively re-register each month. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
