There are lots of great reasons the JCC is known for swimming. Our year-round, indoor pool hosts the acclaimed Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy with classes for all ages and abilities.  
You’ll also find plenty of opportunities to enjoy the indoor pool for fitness, fun and relaxation. Regularly scheduled lap times give adults a chance to swim at their own pace, while the whole family can take advantage of free swim times.
When summer rolls around, our beautiful outdoor pool is an oasis for family recreation and fun!
