Private and Semi-Private Swim Lessons (for Youth and Adults)

 

Private lessons or semi-private lessons are a great way to accelerate learning. These lessons allow those who want to get more comfortable in the water to excel. Through an initial skills test, we can assess the student’s ability and plan lessons around his or her specific needs.

 

Lessons are 30 minutes long and are sold in packages of five or 10 (private & semi-private). Private lessons can be scheduled whenever we show “Open Swim” on our Pool Schedule.

For more information, contact Aquatics Director Amy Kemler at amyk@jccnh.org or Registrar Barbara Zalesch at barbaraz@jccnh.org (203) 387-2424 x250.

We are a developmental team for children between the ages of 6 and 18 years old.  Our swim season runs from mid-September until March, with practices available three times each week.  During these months our swimmers work on learning or improving the four main strokes, flip turns, diving, endurance, how to use a pace clock and more.  They will also compete in several swim meets (often on Sundays) against other JCC’s and local teams.  The JCC organizes fun nights for the participants so that they can interact with each other outside the pool.  The final week of the season we will compete in a Championship meet and end with a fun-filled banquet.

NEW Adaptive Swim Lessons

 

We are now including adaptive swim classes specifically designed for people with special needs to push past their physical, cognitive, or neurological challenges to successfully learn to swim. Additionally, adaptive swim promotes water safety and self-confidence while providing a physical outlet for building muscle tone and reducing stress. Adaptive swim also encourages improved communication and interpersonal skills. Check back for more details.
