Swim Lessons

The JSplash Swim School at the Katz JCC in Southern New Jersey is a year-round learn-to-swim program designed for children as young as 8 weeks old through adults. Our mission is to teach swimmers of all ages and abilities the skills to be safe, comfortable and responsible in and around the water. Swimmers will learn survival skills through stroke development in an engaging, trusting and safe environment with highly trained staff.
