The J Swim School

Join the J Swim School Today!

The J Swim School provides year-round swim lessons for children and adults. Our program is designed to teach water safety, develop proper techniques for multiple swim strokes and inspire a passion for swimming. Our trained instructors will use their swimming experience, knowledge and personalities to mold our participants into safe and confident swimmers.

The Jewish term l’dor v’dor means passing skills from one generation to the next. With this in mind, The J Swim School hopes to teach a new generation the skill of swimming, knowing that it will improve their fitness, fun and safety as it has for swimmers at The J for over 125 years.

Group swim lessons take place during quarterly sessions throughout the year.
Group lessons are provided in 6-week sessions, 30-minute lessons, once a week. There may be up to 3 children in level 1, up to 4 children in levels 2-5 and up to 6 children in stroke clinics. Parent-tot groups may have up to 6 families per group.
