The Jewish Community Center of Omaha Aquatics Department is proud to announce the 2013-2014 pre-competitive Swim & Dive Meet line up, open to JCC Members and Non-Members, ages 5 - 18. These events are geared to help young swimmers and divers cross over into the competitive world of aquatics. Youth are able to experience a fun competition without a high pressure atmosphere.

A note from Anna Ehrenberg, JCC Aquatics Director:
Spring is in the air! And so is the possibility of inclement weather. As such, I just want to make sure all of our swim meet particpants are aware of our inclement weather policies, particularly in regards to swim meets.
In the event of inclement weather involving thunder and/or lightning, the pool will close and reopen 30 minutes post-storm. For our swim meet, you can call the Aquatics Office (402)-334-6473 or the Member Services Desk (402)-334-6426 for the most up-to-date information on the status of the meet.
If the meet has not yet started when pool closure and cancellation occurs, all entry fees will be refunded. If thunder/lightning occurs during the meet, the meet will end and participants will be given their pizza and beverage. Once the pizza and pop has been given out, entry fee refunds will not be given.
