Summer Tips and Reminders

• Only Center Members may stay and swim after classes. If your child does not have a Center Membership in addition to their swim class registration, they are not allowed to use the indoor or outdoor pools after swim class.
• 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.
• We do not allow water wings. We only allow Coast Guard Approved floatation devices. An appropriate floatation device is clearly marked Coast Guard approved (Lifeguard jackets, Puddle Jumpers, etc).
• If your child spends a prolonged period of time in the water, please have him/her wear water shoes, as they protect the soles of tender feet.
• Do you live in Foster City? Ask about discounts on public rates just for Foster City residents!

Please Note: New Group Lesson Fees Effective July 1

  • Weekdays: $133 (Member); $189 (Public)
  • Weekends: $142 (Member); $206 (Public)

Instructor of the Month: Teacher Andrew

Teacher Andrew
Meet Teacher Andrew, a beloved PJCC swim instructor. Andrew is headed to UC Santa Cruz in the fall and will major in history with the goal of becoming a high school history teacher. Andrew loves Mediterranean food, which he had the opportunity to enjoy during recent travels to Greece and Turkey–and next up is a trip to Italy this summer. In his spare time, Andrew is learning how to play the saxophone, loves to dance, and thinks “Scrubs” was the best TV series ever. Whew! Clearly a man with eclectic tastes. Next time you see Andrew, say hi and share your favorite travel trip (or TV show!).
