JCC Swimming Pool Renovations Set to Begin August 11
Renovations will include retiling the entire pool deck, resurfacing the observation deck, draining and painting the pool and painting the walls and ceiling. Work should be completed by October 1. Please scroll below for updated class location and times.

Thank you for your patience and support as we improve our JCC!

 

Early Childhood Group Swim Instruction
The JCC’s early childhood swim program focuses on water comfort and safety, while teaching basic swimming skills in a safe and supportive environment. In these innovative and fun-filled programs, parents are taught how to work safely in the water with their children.

Swim Assessment for New Swimmers
For all children enrolling in a swim program for the first time, we strongly encourage you to bring your child for a free assessment. Our instructors will be able to advise you on the best class for your child based on his or her age and ability. Contact Aquatics Coordinator, Andres Baez at 203.487.0990 or abaez@stamfordjcc.org.

Swim Refund Policy
Due to high demand and limited spots for swim lessons, the JCC refund policy will be strictly enforced. Refunds, credits or make-up classes for unscheduled absences cannot be accommodated. For absences due to serious illness/injury (doctor’s note required) or absences known at least one week in advance, we will make every effort to schedule make-up classes. Placement in make-up classes is based on the schedule of comparable classes and their availability.

Swim Cap Policy
Everyone entering the pool must wear a swim cap. This rule applies to males & females of all ages who have hair, no matter how long.

 

Now there’s more to do on the weekends @ the J!
