Swim Lessons


 

At the Shanna & Bryan Glazer JCC, learning to swim begins at an early age. We offer swim lessons for children beginning at 6 months..

 

Both individual and small group private swim lessons are available to help children overcome a fear of the water and learn the basic skills necessary for swimming competence. Multiple instructors are available to match your child's temperament and your schedule. All of our instructors are highly trained and adhere to teaching consistent swimming techniques.

 

We also offer adult swim lessons for beginners (including fear of the water) all the way up to competitive training. Private lessons will help to advance technique, improve your stroke, or simply learn to swim if you never have before.
