Staenberg Kooper Fellman Campus

Swim Lessons

Members & Non, Ages 3 – Adult
Group Swim Lesson participants will be placed in a level based upon their skills. By progressing through lessons, students build self-confidence and skill. Participants will be reviewed and given an evaluation card at end of the session. Call (402) 334-6473 to determine placement. There will be no make-up days if participant misses their scheduled lesson. Classes will not be pro-rated if participant is absent.

All summer Group Swim Lessons will be held at the indoor pool

Our main goal is to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. With that in mind, some of our policies have been updated. Please contact the Aquatics office at (402) 334-6473 if you have questions.

Please be advised of the following protocol:
• Signed Waiver Forms to Participate In Classes
• There will be 5-10 minute intervals between classes to decrease crowding during transitions
• Only 1 parent allowed per baby for Baby & Me lessons

To use any credits on your account, you must either register in person at Member Services or call (402) 334-6419 to register. You MUST indicate that you have credits when you register. (If you register online there is no way to indicate you have credits to use.) The week before lessons start, new participants will be emailed an electronic waiver form that must be completed and returned for each swimmer to participated in group swim lessons.

Important Registration Update

The Aquatics Department is trying to make registration as fair as possible for everyone to participate in our group lessons. Our goal is to be able to offer more days and times for group lessons, but at this current time we are limited on instructors (trying to hire more) and doing our best to make registration the most efficient for all families.  NEW – Member registration for the upcoming session of swim lessons will be held in-person only at the JCC to ensure correct level placement and answer any questions you may have. If spaces are still available, Non Members may register in person, at the Member Services Desk two days after member registration opens. Anyone that can’t attend registration on Monday or Wednesday can call Member Services (402-334-6426) the following day to register but spots maybe full or limited. Member and Non Member registration will open according to session date. Session registration will be held at the dates below, in person ONLY, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. in the Community Engagement Venue at the J.
