When you Arrive

Please check-in 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment.

Members must sign a waiver before entering the facility. Save time during check-in and download the waiver here


When you arrive, park by the side entrance for the Beverly Levy Early Learning Center and walk down the clearly marked path to the side entrance to the pool. JCC staff will be waiting at the entrance to check your temperature. Please stand on designated spots outside. We will let you in 5 minutes before your swim time in order to allow you to prepare.



Please come showered and dressed in a swimsuit. All showers, and water fountains are closed at this time. Please wear water shoes, flip flops, or slides while on the pool deck and bring a water bottle, filled from home. Additionally, you will be required to wear a face mask at all times; water walkers must wear a mask while in the pool. Swimmers may take their masks off when swimming lanes only. 


After your temperature is taken, please remove outdoor shoes in the hallway and follow the directions of the staff members.  They will direct you to sanitized bins along the inside wall.  That is where you may store your personal items (wallet, phone, etc.), as well as your mask once you are in the pool.


While you are preparing to enter the pool, the swimmers in the previous pool session will leave on the opposite side and will go to the locker rooms to change.  When finished in the locker room, members will leave through the current side entrance door.


Staff will clean in between sessions.


Swimmers in the water:  please respect the lifeguard!  If you are asked to exit the pool, please listen.  We know how important your swim time is but it is also important to the next swimmer


Finally, though our locker rooms are closed at the beginning of your session, locker rooms will open for use AFTER each swim, just for changing into your clothes. SHOWERS REMAIN CLOSED.


Please be mindful of social distancing and keep your mask on! Swimmers may use the restrooms in our pool hallway as needed, on a one-person-at-a-time basis. The restrooms will be cleaned by our maintenance team regularly. 



if you need to cancel an appointment, please send an email as soon as possible to Barbara Zalesch (, and/or call the pool office at 203-387-2424 x270
