Lifeguard Classes Available
Interested in becoming a certified lifeguard? PJCC Aquatics is offering a lifeguard session for participants 15 years of age or older on Saturday, May 19 & Sunday, May 20: Code 52750. For more information, or to sign up, call our office at 650.378.2782.

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

Important Swim Lesson Reminders

  • If your child is going to be spending a prolonged period of time in the water, please have him/her wear water shoes, as it protects the bottom of the feet.
  • If your child is under the age of 7 years old, he/she must be accompanied by an adult at all times, before and after classes. This means we need you in the water with them!
  • Only “U.S. Coast Guard-approved” flotation devices are allowed. For your convenience, we have several of acceptable “puddle jumpers” available for use. You’ll find them on the indoor pool deck.

Complimentary Swim Evaluations
Not sure of your class level? Take advantage of a free swim evaluation. 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 at 650.378.2782.

The PJCC is Hiring
In addition to lifeguards, we’re also looking for dedicated staff to teach swim lessons and coach our awesome youth swim team, The Barracudas. Please contact Aquatics Manager Courtney Smith.
