Swim Tip of the Month

Perfect Your Technique

Mastering just five simple moves will help make you a more polished, confident, and skilled swimmer. Learn how with Five Basic Skills in Swimming!

Lifeguard of the Month: Dani Lipparoni

Dani is originally from Italy but moved to the U.S. when he was six years old. For as long as he can remember, he has played competitive soccer (the most popular sport in his native Italy) and not only can he kick a soccer ball, but he can juggle one 50 times! When he’s not at the pool or in a soccer field, Dani collects vinyl records and his favorite is the 1977 release, Animals by Pink Floyd. Next time you see Dani, say hello or maybe try Buongiorno—Italian for “good day!”

Deadlines and Registration Reminders

Start the Year off Right! Register for January Swim Lessons
New sessions start every day from Saturday, January 5 through Friday, January 11. If you haven’t yet reserved your spot in January, limited space is still available. All sessions are open for registration. Your monthly fee is based off of at least three scheduled classes per month. Your monthly payment will be adjusted if the number of scheduled classes falls below three due to holidays or facility closures.

Please note: cancellations must be made by the 15th of the previous month.

No Class Dates in January/February

  • Tuesday, January 1 – 4 (Winter Break)
  • Monday, January 21 (Martin Luther King Jr. Day)

Registration Made Easy!

Reminder: New Registration Process
Starting with January lessons, we have moved to our new registration system, MyPJCC. First-time users enrolling in this new system will require assistance from our Aquatics staff, so please contact us at 650.378.2782. We are happy to guide you through the process.

The Aquatics Office will also be handling all group lesson registrations in our existing and new systems. Please call or visit our Aquatics Office with any questions or for assistance in signing up!

Important Reminder
Please remember that children must be accompanied to their lesson. Dropping a child off at the front is not an option. Parents of children 7-12 years MUST remain in the facility and parents of children under 7 must stay on the pool deck during the lesson.

Missed Classes
We do not offer make up classes for missed classes. In some cases, if a physician saw the child, we will honor a doctor’s note and will arrange for a swim lesson credit.

Complimentary Swim Evaluations
Not sure of your class level? Our swim instructors will meet with your child in the water to assess their swim proficiency and place them in the appropriate level. To schedule your free evaluation, call our Aquatics Office today at 650.378.2782!
