At the JCC our goal is to provide a welcoming, safe environment to everyone who steps onto our pool deck!  From the 6-month-old to the 92-year-old and everyone in between, we have a broad range of programs to accommodate all levels and interests, whether you want to learn to swim, refine your strokes, get in shape or just splash around in the water.

We understand that each student enters the water with a different skill level, a different comfort level and different goals.  Our wide variety of programming and skilled instructors ensure that each participant, regardless of age, class or interest, gets the most out of our outstanding Aquatics programming.

About Our Staff:
Our staff consists of highly trained, certified, experienced and professional lifeguards, swimming instructors, coaches and director. Our staff takes pride in the programs, quality and cleanliness of our fantastic facility. No matter which program you or your child is involved in, you can be assured that you are receiving excellent and appropriate instruction and supervision. There is always at least one lifeguard on duty to ensure that you, your family and your guests are safe and that the pool area is clean and organized. Kim Koza, our Aquatics Director, can answer your general questions regarding policies and schedules.

Choosing the Right Swim Class/Level
If you can’t find the right class or think your child has moved up since the last class, you can bring your swimmer in to be tested. This will ensure that your child will be taught at his/her appropriate level. It only takes a couple of minutes for an instructor to evaluate a child’s ability. Contact Michelle Sion at aquatics@jccnj.org if you would like assistance choosing the right level.
