Swim Safe Academy

  • 2014 Denver JCC promotional images
The purpose of our swim program is to give children an opportunity to get used to the water through play and positive experiences. Parents who are able to introduce their child to swimming at an early age will see great progress in their child’s swimming ability as the child gets older and develops physically. We are excited to teach your swimmer!
