Aquatics Education at the J

Swimming is a gift for life. According to the Talmud, a Jewish parent is required to teach his/her child three things:

  1. Torah – that is, the rules of the world as we understand them, and wrong from right
  2. How to make a living
  3. How to swim

This summer the J is excited to partner with the Coogs Swim Team to offer a swim camp for J swimmers age 5-9. 

During the camp, the staff will work on improving technique, teaching new strokes while increasing their endurance. By the end of the 10 weeks, they will be able to move through the water easier and faster and have created a new love for the sport of swimming.
