Swim School at the J 

JCC Austin offers youth swim lessons founded in the principles of the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program. Classes are 30-40 minutes in length and have small instructor-to-student ratios. We also offer pick-up and drop-off services from the JCC's after school program, Kids Connection, and for the JCC Early Childhood Program Central students.

POLICIES           

The purpose of the Parent and Child Aquatic Program is to teach basic skills that prepare young children to become comfortable in the water so they can be ready to learn how to swim when they are older. The program is not designed to teach children to become accomplished swimmers or even to survive in the water on their own. It will, however, provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to orient your child to the water and to safely supervise all water activities.

Sundays meet once a week for 4 weeks.
Mondays & Wednesdays meet twice a week for one month (8 classes per session).

 

The primary objective of the American Red Cross Preschool Aquatic program is to promote the developmentally appropriate learning of fundamental water safety and aquatic skills by young children. Minimum of 2 participants required.

The American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program is designed to teach aquatic and personal water safety skills in a logical progression within four levels. Students will begin by learning basic skills and as they progress through the levels, they will refine the different strokes and build endurance. Safety education is a vital element incorporated into each lesson to promote safe behaviors in, on and around different types of aquatic environments.
