Meet Our Camp Keff Swim Instructors

(L–R): Teacher Fabricio hails from El Salvador and is fluent in Spanish. Teacher Eli enjoys water polo and wrestling, and in the fall will head toward Reno to attend the University of Nevada. When Teacher Clay isn’t playing soccer, he can be found rooting for his favorite team, the Los Angeles Galaxy, and fellow sports enthusiast Teacher Megan plays competitive volleyball.  Teacher Hannah loves to tap dance and Teacher Alyssa, a graduate of Middle College in San Mateo, will continue her education this fall at San Francisco State. Last but not least, Teacher Cat has an adorable two-year old daughter named Summer who will learn how to swim from her favorite instructor—her mother. A winning team, both in the water and out!

Swim Tips and Reminders

  • Center Members ONLY are permitted to stay and swim after classes. If your child does not have a Center Membership in addition to their swim class registration, they are not permitted to use the indoor or outdoor pools after swim class.
  • Remember, Center Members enjoy up to a $50 discount on swim class fees per session! To learn more, visit the Membership Office.
  • Please limit your towel usage to one towel and remember to keep showers short so that everyone may enjoy the use of the family locker rooms.
  • Reusable swim diapers are required for all children who are not yet fully potty trained. You can purchase these at stores such as Target, or buy them at the Front Desk.
  • We do not allow water wings. We only allow Coast Guard Approved flotation devices. An appropriate flotation device is clearly marked Coast Guard approved (Lifeguard jackets, Puddle Jumpers, etc).

PJCC is Hiring!
Interested in becoming part of the Aquatics team? We’re looking for dedicated staff to lifeguard, teach swim lessons, and coach our Barracuda youth swim team. Please contact Aquatics Manager, Courtney Smith.
