The JCC Pool is Now Open for Summer

With the sizzle of summer approaching, celebrate with a trip to the JCC pool. A family fun atmosphere open to all with two heated pools for members to enjoy. 

The 2024 pool season began Saturday, May 25 and ends Monday, Sept. 2. Pool hours will vary throughout the season to adjust for the camp schedule, holidays, swim team and lessons. See the full details on hours and schedules below. 

“We look forward to the start of the summer each year,” said Amy Bisnett, associate director of Children’s Programming at the JCC. “We love to see kids participating in swim lessons and seeing their growth throughout the summer. It’s a great family and social activity to meet with friends and bask in the nice weather.”

At the heart of The JCC’s summer offerings, the pool also serves campers, swim team members, and those taking lessons. All children 18 months and older who participate in the Summer Camp take Red Cross certified swim lessons. These lessons are tailored to encourage comfort and confidence in the water.

For a more personalized touch, semi-private and private swim lessons are also available. These 30-minute lessons are offered each day from July 1 to Aug. 23 from 3:30pm to 4:30pm on weekdays and 8am to 11am on weekends. “Our lessons are for all levels of ability,” said Pam Ranieri, director of Children’s Programming at the JCC. “The lifeguards are in the water with the class, so they are very hands on.” 

Additionally, any lifeguards looking to join the JCC team can reach out to learn more about available jobs. To join the pool and sign up for lessons, or for more information email [email protected]

Another opportunity at the pool is the swim team. Strong swimmers are encouraged to join the J-Rays swim team. The team practices from July 1 to Aug. 23 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays before the camp day begins. Children work on stroke development, endurance, and team work while they train to participate in a mini inner squad team meet. For more information and to join the team contact [email protected]

The fun is not only reserved for children, adults can also sign up for Aqua Fit to add a fun exercise class to their routine. Set to music, Aqua Fit offers a low impact workout to improve both cardiovascular health and strength. Members can take classes for free, and nonmembers can join for a fee of $10. Classes are led by a certified Aqua Fit trainer and all fitness levels are welcome to get a good outdoor workout in the heated pool.
