    Swim Lessons: FAQs

    OFJCC Palo Alto JCC


    Q: Are masks required at all times?
    A: Masks are optional for vaccinated individuals. For anyone 2 and up not yet vaccinated, masks are still required.

    Q: Will instructors be in the water for the lesson?
    A: Yes. Instructors will be in the water except in our Polar Bear class for infants.

    Q: My child has been out of the water for a year and I am unsure what level they should be in and whether or not I need to get in the water with them. How can I find out?
    A: Click here and follow the charts to find the appropriate level. Remember that it is better to sign up for the lower level when you're stuck between two options.

    Q: Will goggles and/or towels be available to borrow?
    A: Yes. While we do have some loaner goggles and towels if needed, we encourage families to bring their own whenever possible.

    Q: Can my other child hang out in the indoor pool during their sibling's lesson?
    A: Yes! Our indoor pool is open on a drop-in basis. Please note that all swimmers under age 7 are required to have an adult in the water with them.

    Q: Can I swim laps while my child is in their lesson?
    A: Yes! Please be sure you're watching the time and that your child is picked up from their swim lesson on time.

    Q: Can we come early or stay after to play in the indoor pool?
    Yes! Our indoor pool is open for family recreational swim during all open hours.

    Q: Will there be any spaces available for changing?
    A: Yes! All of our locker rooms are open, including our family locker room with private shower rooms.

    Q: Will I have to enroll my child every week for their lesson?
    A: No. Once you register online for your class and pay the fee, your spot in that class will be kept through the end of the month. To avoid needing to re-register your child every month, consider our auto-enrollment offer. Click here for more details.
