Swim Lessons (Swim School at the J)
The J offers year-round swim lessons for kids of all ages and abilities.

All lessons are taught by certified instructors, and private sessions are available for both children and adults.
Group lessons cannot be prorated, refunded, or made up, due to limited class capacity.
