We look forward to seeing you in 2022!

Please remember to bring your membership card & vaccination card to the pool to check-in. Don’t have a membership card? Reach out to our membership director Nick Finlayson at [email protected]

Proof of vaccination is required to enter the JCC for anyone eligible for the covid vaccine.

We have two outdoor heated pools:

Small Pool

  • Shallow in depth and ideal for small children who are non-swimmers.
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult, sibling or babysitter age 15 or older.

 

Large Pool

  • Features both a shallow end and deep end, designated diving area in the deep end and a lap swim section (by request).
  • Children who are unable to stand with their heads completely above the water in the pool’s shallow end must be accompanied in the water by a supervising adult, sibling or babysitter age 15 or older, unless they pass a test with the lifeguard. The test consists of swimming two widths of the pool and treading water for 30 seconds.

 

Whether swimming for exercise or pleasure, make the most of your JCC membership by using the pool to its fullest this summer.

Also, please remember to follow all pool rules both in and out of the pool.
