Private/Semi-Private Lessons

Note: Due to the national lifeguard shortage, we are unable to offer private/semi-private lessons at this time. Please take a look at our group swim lesson program to make a splash at the J. For more on private and semi-private lessons at the J, click here >>

Adaptive Swim Lessons

Our Adaptive Swim Lessons program is for children and adults in partnership with Nurturing Water Therapies. The program uses techniques that place emphasis on swimming skills modified or adapted to accommodate individual abilities, needs, and goals, regardless of age. Lessons are created for, but not limited to, those with anxiety, physical, sensory, communication, or behavior challenges.
