General Swim Team Information:

While school is still in session, practices are scheduled for after school hours. Once school is out for the summer, swim team practice shifts to morning hours.

Practices are set up for kids to come every day, but if you can’t make that, just make as many as you can.

  1. HOW TO BE ON THE TEAM: All JCC members and non-members are welcome to join the Water Dragons Swim Team. Swimmers ages 4-18 can swim with the team. If your child is having fun and improving in the water, we think they should be on the team! If they are reluctant to participate after the first two weeks, we encourage families to wait until next year so the child does not have a negative experience with the water.
  2. ATTENDING CAMP SHELANU? Water Dragon groups Aleph, Bet, and Gimel are able to have coordinated drop off where staff walk swimmers to camp at the end of practice.
  3. NON-COMPETITION WATER DRAGONS: Swimmers who are able to swim a length of the pool are welcome to join the team and attend practices and the Intersquad meet on May 19th without competing in the meets against other teams. If a competition spot opens up, they will be offered to the Non-Competition Water Dragons in the order they signed up. This is also a great option for those swimmers who want to have fun, spend time with friends, and get better at swimming without the pressure of swim meets.
