Here at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center we offer our own type of unique academy style swim lessons that is set in a productive, professional, and nurturing environment. We focus on teaching water safety and work to instill a passion for swimming in all of our participants. 

Lessons take place in our shallow end at our Olympic Pool where the water is heated and children swim beside our Barracudas swim team and also share the pool with Olympians. This always provides an end goal and possibility for a sparked future in swimming. 

We currently offer lessons starting at age 4 and up. We book our lessons for the month at 30 min sessions twice a week for a total of eight lessons per month. All of our lessons are with a certified and highly qualified instructors and we offer various options for lessons. We offer Private (One on One instruction with one of our instructors)and Semi-Private lessons (2-3 on One instruction offered only to those who have two swimmers at time of registration). In the summer months we offer Group Lessons that consist of 5-6 swimmers to one instructor.
