Swim School at the J!

Ages 3.5 – 5
Where young children get a head start on swimming, gain confidence in the water and begin working on basic swimming skills, while interacting with an instructor and other children in a fun and safe environment.

Through our comprehensive curriculum children will learn skills, build knowledge, gain confidence and feel safe in and around water. Using a step-by-step approach to learning, students will build proficiency as they successfully progress through levels that teach the four essential strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Most importantly, our curriculum is built in such a way that children will be excited to advance through each level.

Every swimmer will receive a certificate in which he or she will be able to see the specific skills needed to progress to the next level. Swimmers also will be awarded a new color of swim cap as they progress through each level. Each semester ends with a free swim competition.
