Benefits of Youth Swim Team
- Team Building: Swimmers learn to work together, to encourage each other, and to communicate for reaching group goals.
- Social Development and Self-Confidence: While children are learning life-long skills, they’re also observing peers and learning social behaviors like waiting their turn and cheering on their peers. Achieving benchmarks serves to build self-confidence and independence. Most importantly, swimming is fun.
- Minimal Financial Investment: Unlike many other sports for youth, swim team requires only a swimsuit and goggles.

Aquatics Are Central at the JCC
Aquatics and learning to swim are deeply rooted in Jewish values and culture. Our aquatics program is integral to our community center, and we have built and maintained an aquatics center consisting of indoor, outdoor, competition-sized, and therapeutic pools. Our love of aquatics and passion for aquatic exercise starts early with swim lessons offered to all ages beginning at 6 months with parent/baby classes, continuing with lessons for children and classes for adults, and we offer arthritis and therapy classes for those well into their 90s.
