My experience with the Lenny Krazelburg Swim Academy at the Katz JCC has been amazing! My daughter has taken lessons in other programs, but with the Lenny K. Swim Academy, I have been able to see her skills progress.  I am not at all knowledgeable in the sport, so as I watch the lessons, I am amazed to see how the instructor teaches and interacts with her.  She loves coming to the pool and so do I knowing she will receive great lessons.

I am amazed with my children’s success with this program. They are learning faster than I could have imagined.  The one-on-one personal attention they receive from the instructor is what helps them progress quickly. I am appreciative of the hard work by the instructors.
