Frequently Asked Questions

The Group Swim Lesson program at the EDCJCC runs on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. There are 6 sessions in the year, and each session runs for 6 weeks (sometimes with planned breaks in the schedule). Session and registration dates are posted online at least 4 weeks prior to registration. Classes sell out very quickly, so please make sure to sign up as soon as you can.

Beginning one week prior to open registration, members are given access to priority registration for 24 hours. Six days prior to open registration, students currently enrolled in the active session have 24 hours to register for the next session. If you miss your priority registration period, you must sign up during the open registration. Anyone who registers within the wrong time frame will be refunded and have their registration withdrawn.

Our Parent-and-Child classes include up to 20 children. Our Learn-to-Swim classes include up to 10 children.

We do not allow registrants to switch days or attend any classes they are not registered for. To ensure the high quality of class, we enforce a student-to-teacher ratio to prevent classes from being too large.

*Accommodations may be afforded in some situations, but there will be absolutely no refunds subsequent to the Friday after the first week of classes.
