The SJCC’s 25-yard indoor pool has a 2 1/2 foot deep preschool instructional area, adult lap lanes, and a certified lifeguard on duty at all times.
The J offers lessons for kids and adults. Our popular Lil’ Bubblers class introduces infants to the water with their parents. Our Red Cross learn-to-swim program is taught by experienced instructors who help children improve their technique, strength, and endurance in a supportive atmosphere. Adults may drop in to swim in the pool with their kids, take private lessons, swim laps or participate in masters swim and low-impact water exercise classes.
The J is a four-time winner (2014, 2013, 2012, 2011) of ParentMap magazine’s Golden Teddy award for “Best Swim Lessons.” Parents love our relaxed atmosphere, supportive environment, and, especially our skilled, patient, and caring teachers.
Here is what ParentMap wrote in July 2014: The SJCC “continues its multiyear reign as tops in the swimming category. Your votes flowed in for the J, which offers aquatics programs for babies to adults at its Mercer Island pool. Voters praise the ‘great teachers,’ calling them ‘experienced’ and ‘engaging.’ One parent appreciates the facility’s ‘safe and fun environment,’ and another calls it ‘the best place in our area for after-school care, camps and classes.’ Among myriad other family and recreational programs, the J’s aquatics program has camps, parent-and-tot lessons, plus group, one-on-one and adult swim instruction.”
