Private/Semi-Private Swim Lesson Inquiry

Appeals to Many

    Although private and semi-private swim lessons are for any age and ability, those who tend to take them are those who want more specialized attention, for example:

  • Adults aged 25 and older who never learned to swim.
  • Swimmers and divers who are looking to increase their competitiveness.
  • Non-swimmers preparing for a vacation near water.
  • Those who fear the water.
  • Young children who are looking to gain confidence in the water.

Benefits of Private and Semi-Private Swim Lessons

  • Lessons Tailored to Your Needs – swim classes are customized to the individual’s goals, from overcoming a fear of water to training for an ironman competition.
  • Individualized Attention – private lessons are one-to-one and semi-private are for 2-3 participants.
  • Quality of Life – completing swim lessons boosts confidence in and around water.

What to Expect

The JCC provides any equipment that may be needed for these private swim classes. You just need to arrive with your towel and wearing a swimsuit or designated swimwear. Goggles and/or a swim cap may be required; your instructor will let you know before class.

The JCC offers private swim lessons during open swim times year-round. Each lesson is a half hour long. Please note that there is currently a wait list for private swim lessons. To reserve a spot, please contact Cody at who will provide availability and payment details. If we are unable to schedule you or you no longer wish to wait, you will receive a refund. Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

Aquatics Are Central at the JCC

Learning to swim and aquatics are deeply rooted in Jewish values and culture. The JCC serves Jewish and non-Jewish audiences alike, as learning to swim is a universal value. Our aquatics program is integral to our community center, and we have built and maintained indoor, outdoor, competition-sized, and therapeutic pools. Our love of aquatics starts early with parent/child classes, continues with lessons for adults, and we offer arthritis and therapy classes for those well into their 90s.
