POOL SCHEDULE & RESERVATIONS
Welcome to the Pool!
Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 7:00am-8:00pm, and Saturday & Sunday 7:00am-7:00pm.
Reservations are required for the pool, to help us maintain social distancing as required by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department. Currently, the pool is available for members only (no guests please) up to 8 days in advance with a limit of 1 reservation per person per day.
If you’re an active JCC member, you can use the “My J” mobile app to make a reservation.
You must have an active JCC membership to use the pool. To activate your membership, email email@example.com.
Lap swim requires a reservation. You will have 45 minutes to swim. Please limit to 4 reservations per week. Currently we are allowing just one swimmer per lane (2 swimmers if you are from the same household). Use the “My J” mobile app to see the schedule and make a reservation.
(Wondering why we stopped allowing members of different households to share a lane? It’s because Santa Clara County is currently in the Purple Tier.)
Family swim times are Fridays from 3:00-4:30pm and Sundays from 2:00-3:30pm. The pool is divided into sections, each with their own table and place to supervise children. Each section has a pool edge to get in and out of.
Up to 6 members in the same household may share a pool section. The deep end, shallow end, recreation area and baby pool are available to reserve. For family lap swim, please reserve a lap swim lane.
The deep end is near the field, the shallow end is near the playground, and the rec area is the square by the stairs.
Please don’t bring meals, only snacks.
The Baby Pool and the Recreation Area are also available throughout the day to reserve. Check the My J app for available times.
Reservation Cancellation and No-Show Policy
Since pool time slots are limited, if you are unable to use your reservation, please cancel at least 24 hours in advance so that another swimmer may take your spot. All no-shows and late cancellations are subject to a $10 no-show fee.
Also, please note our Standby Policy: If a member doesn’t check in within the first 10 minutes of their reservation, we may give that time slot to another swimmer. This will allow as many people as possible to spend time in the pool. Thank you for understanding!
According to the CDC, “There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, spas, or water play areas. Proper operation and maintenance (including disinfection with chlorine and bromine) of these facilities should inactivate the virus in the water.” See our pool rules for more information about the steps we’re taking to help keep things safe at the pool.

Alerts About Pool Closings

A Note About Fees
If you are registering a child for an aquatics program, please note that the program fee is based on the child’s JCC membership status, not the parent’s JCC membership status. If the child is a Full Center Member, he or she receives the Full Center Member discount.
