Teens

All children must be swim-tested before enrolling in a class unless they hold a Red Cross card indicating their current level. If your child is at a higher level for his/her age they may join the older class. Swim caps required.

Keep track of your child’s progress with The American Red Cross Swim App! Designed to complement the JCC swim programs, the app allows your child to stay motivated and progress to their next level. Additionally, it delivers water safety information that can help keep your family safe in and around the water.
