Pool Lane Distribution
We work to ensure that everyone is able to use the pool. With this in mind, we've made a few changes to the designations of our lap lanes. The following designations have been put in place for the outdoor pool and are now in effect every day.
  • Lane 1 will be a designated ‘walk lap lane only’.
  • Lanes 2 and 3 will be designated ‘swim lap lanes only’ from 10:00 am - until the pool closes.
  • The lanes will be designated for specific usage regardless of their occupancy.
  • The JCC pool staff will have the authority to enforce the rules.


Swim Testing Policy
Summer is a wonderful and busy time at the JCC. As with all of our programming, your safety in the outdoor pool is our top priority. Our trained life guards are on duty to supervise the waters to ensure that everyone has a fun and safe time. In addition, any youth ages 10 and under (or swimmers  that, at the discretion of the Aquatics Staff, appear to be struggling) will be swim tested.  The swim test will consist of swimming from the wall closest to the diving well on the west side of the pool to the lane line and back to the wall.  To receive a green wrist band and go off the diving boards, the swim test must be completed strongly and using a stroke. If the swimmer completes the swim test but struggles or does not use some form of a stroke, they will receive a yellow wrist band and will only be able to swim in the shallow end of the lap pool with an adult supervisor in the water with them.  If the swimmer cannot complete the swim, they will receive a red wrist band and will need to remain in the baby pool with an adult supervisor. A swimmer may attempt the swim test once a week, and after obtaining a green wrist band will be placed on the green list, so that they may just check in at the towel desk to retrieve their wrist band when entering the pool.  All youth 10 and under must wear a wrist band every time they swim, regardless of whether they are with an adult or not.
