Swim Lessons

Our swim lessons are designed for all – from the tiniest water tots who are dipping their toes for the first time, to teens and adults who are ready to take the plunge and learn to swim in any body of water.

Overview

At the J, we believe our swimmers deserve to have a positive experience in an environment that is both fun and safe. Lessons are available for all ages, from infants and toddlers to youth, teens and adults.

For children’s lessons, the J utilizes the American Red Cross “Learn-to-Swim” program that offers a unique, six-level instructional approach. Our attentive swim instructors help your child master various swim techniques while teaching them important water safety tips. Our swim schools start with Parent/Infant & Child classes for ages six months-five years and includes American Red Cross Swim lessons from levels 1-6.

We are committed to the safety of our swimmers, which means we carefully evaluate the skills of each swimmer before advancing them to the next level of swim instruction. The prerequisite for each level is the successful demonstration of the skills from the preceding level.

We offer separate beginner lessons for pre-teens/teens and adults 18+. Private lessons are also offered. Classes at our Owings Mills location are all co-ed and take place Saturdays, Sundays weekly or twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. At our Park Heights location, co-ed, male-only, and female-only classes are available for all ages and take place Sundays and Mondays.
