Learn to Swim

The Learn to Swim program at JCC of Youngstown includes levels to allow students to develop advanced swimming skills. Choose your age level and register for the monthly classes. At the first session, your swimmer will be assessed and placed in the appropriate level. As you take more classes, swimmers will advance through the levels as they master the swimming skills. If you are unsure what level to start from, contact the Aquatics Coordinator to schedule an evaluation.
