J Swim Academy

Swim Lessons

J Swim Academy combines the best of both Red Cross Swim Lessons and Swim America. We emphasize early water safety and proper USA swimming stroke progressions and guidelines while maintaining a focus on providing an inclusive and safe environment, taught by experienced instructors. Our swim levels progress from water comfort to water safety with the end goal of proper stroke technique in all four strokes, starts, and turns.

Private and Semi-Private swim lessons are scheduled for your convenience, and you can focus your lesson on what you want to learn.

If you have 3-4 children that want to do a lesson together, we can put together a Create-A-Class. You choose the children so you feel comfortable with everyone in the group. 3 children minimum and 4 children maximum.

For more information about J Swim Academy or to register for private or semi-private lessons, email Swim Lesson Coordinator/Swim Team Administrator Rachel Kidd Levy  at JSwimAcademy@jccns.com.

Parent and Tot Swim

This may be your little one’s exciting first dip into the pool and we aim to make it special for everyone involved! Parents bring children (ages 6 months to 3 years) into the pool for a fun lesson with one of our experienced instructors. We’ll sing songs, dance and splash in the water, and while finding comfort in the pool at each child’s individual pace.

Swim diapers are required.
