Azura / JCC Swim School

Azura's mission at the J is to help children and teens develop their swim skills in a positive, fun and supportive swim team environment with world class coaching.

Drowning is the leading cause of death for children and adults. But it doesn't have to be that way. At the Azura/JCC Swim School, we are dedicated to teaching children the skills they need throughout life to stay safe near water and embrace the wonders swimming has to offer. Our instructors are flexible and trained to work with each child individually, keying in to their interests, challenges and fears. Children learn to swim in a safe and positive environment. 

  • Young swimmers learn to swim back to the wall after an accidental fall into the water; how to pull themselves out of the water; and to master breathing, paddling and kicking in order to swim to safety.
  • Swimmers learn through a progressive step-by-step method at their own pace and move on only when ready.
  • Instructors are highly trained with a minimum of two years teaching experience, are USA swimming coaching certified, CPR/first aid trained and have undergone a background check.
