PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

Private lessons are one-on-one with a certified instructor. To schedule private lessons, please contact Jodi Lovenwirth at 610.435.3571 ext. 118.

SEMI-PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

Semi-private lessons consist of a two person group. Children can benefit from taking semi-private lessons by having more one-on-one instruction time as well as the additional moral support of a family member or friend swimming beside them.

GROUP SWIM LESSONS

In group lessons, a small ratio is maintained to ensure each child gets one-on-one time with the instructor. Group lessons are available multiple days a week, as well as, by appointment.

MOMMY AND ME (6 Months - 3 Years)

Mommy and Me classes are designed for children 6 months to three years. This class focuses on introduction to water safety for caregiver and child and having children become comfortable in the water.

TODDLER SWIM LESSONS (3 Years and Up)

Add a little splash to your day with Toddler Swim Lessons. This class is designed to help Preschool and Pre-K age children improve their skills in the water.

ADULT LESSONS

Do you have a long-standing fear of the water? It's actually more common than you think. Whether you'd like to improve on your technique, learn new strokes, or simply learn to feel comfortable in the water, adult swim lessons are perfect place to start.

SPECIAL NEEDS SWIM

Do you know that the J has instructors trained in working with special needs swimmers in our Adaptive Swim Program? We offer many options for students of all levels and abilities to join our excellent aquatic education programs. Our goal is to incorporate basic lifesaving, social, and learning skills necessary to be more independent in and around an aquatic setting. Days and times are flexible to meet client needs.
