Learning to stay afloat can save lives
Drowning is one of the primary causes of death among children under five, so learning to stay afloat can save lives. That’s why we were thrilled to partner with four-time Olympic champion swimmer Lenny Krayzelburg to bring his water-safe method to JCCs. “Kids want to spend their time in the water, so making sure that they are water safe is one of our main objectives,” Krayzelburg says. “By using our method, they develop a sense of comfort in the water. Then we can go on to teach them strokes.” The Krayzelburg swim schools work with babies as young as six months, along with toddlers and older children.
The Krayzelburg JCC Swim Academy is now in several JCCs and serves JCC day camps in the New York area.
