The JCC Swim Club, staffed by professional swim coaches, is a swim program which is offered to all recreational, fitness and competitive swimmers. For the recreational swimmer, the classes provide stroke technique and endurance training. Competitive Bronze, Silver, or Golds swimmers have the option to compete in USA swim meets throughout the season. Competitive swimmers must be registered with USA Swimming ($80 annual fee - see your coach for application procedures) prior to competing. More details on swim equipment and available competitions will be answered in our information meeting prior to the first day of practice. Coaches reserve the right to move swimmers to an alternate swim level to provide the best challenge for each swimmer's ability.
Registration is monthly for each swim group. Platinum, Bronze, & Silver classes are JCC Member-Exclusive Programs. Members can arrange for automatic monthly withdrawals. Registration will open to Non-Members for the Gold Group on the 15th of the month, if space is available. Required registration forms can be found at the bottom of this page.
