The 2021 outdoor swimming season is finally here! Like last year, semi-private and private swimming lessons are offered by appointment. Goup swimming lessons are not offered because of the pandemic.

See our new mask rules effective June 28, 2021. Anyone who is not vaccinated MUST still wear a mask at all times while in the building and on the pool deck. Also, COVID-19 capacity restrictions for our pools have been lifted and we are no longer taking pool reservations.

Please remember to bring your membership card to the pool to check-in. Don't have a membership card? Come in to the JCC weekdays from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. to request one.


We actually have two outdoor heated pools:

Small Pool

  • Shallow in depth and ideal for small children who are non-swimmers.
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult, sibling or babysitter age 15 or older.

Large Pool

  • Features both a shallow end and deep end, designated diving area in the deep end and a lap swim section.
  • Children who are unable to stand with their heads completely above the water in the pool's shallow end must be accompanied in the water by a supervising adult, sibling or babysitter age 15 or older, unless they pass a test with the lifeguard. The test consists of swimming two widths of the pool and treading water for 30 seconds.


Whether swimming for exercise or pleasure, make the most of your JCC membership by using the pool to its fullest this summer.

Also, please remember to follow all pool rules both in and out of the pool.
