JCC Swim Club
The JCC Swim Club, staffed by professional swim coaches, is a swim program which is offered to all recreational, fitness and competitive swimmers. For the recreational swimmer, the classes provide stroke technique and endurance training. Competitive swimmers are given the opportunity to compete in USA swim meets held in San Antonio and throughout South Texas in Bronze, Silver or Gold divisions. Competitive swimmers must be registered with USA Swimming ($74 annual fee - see your coach for application procedures) prior to competing. Coaches reserve the right to move swimmers up and/or down to provide the best challenge for each swimmer's ability.
Registration is monthly for each swim group. Platinum, Bronze & Silver classes are for JCC Members Only. Members can arrange for automatic monthly withdrawals. Registration will be open for Non-Members for the Gold Group on the 15th of the month, if space is available. Required registration forms can be found at the bottom of this page.
