We offer small group ratios that guarantee our ability to focus on individual development. Students learn to be safe and strong swimmers while focusing on technique and correct form as they progress.

To apply for this financial assistance, please complete this Scholarship Application and return it to the APJCC Membership Office. Thank you to the participants in the APJCC Adult Master Swim Class, who funded the swim scholarship for youth to learn how to swim! The Master Swim Class participants personally know the joy of swimming, and the importance to have all youth learn how to swim, regardless of the financial capability of their families.

If you would like to contribute to this scholarship fund, please contact the JCC at development@apjcc.org or 408.357.7401.

Parent-tot lessons are group lessons for children ages 6 months to 3 years old. Each child must be accompanied by a parent. Swim instructors use a variety of songs and games to help children acclimate to the water while learning swimming skills and having fun.  Parents will learn to use cueing to help their children become comfortable in the water and prepare them for our preschool swim lessons.  We will have fun interacting with other families while we learn kicking, bubbles, floating, and even submersions.  This class provides a fun and safe environment for parents to bond with their children in the pool.

To register and for more information, contact aquatics@apjcc.org or call 408.357.7428.
