Aquatics at the JCC
The JCC has some of the finest indoor and outdoor pools, as well as a great selection of pool activities and classes.
Aquatics Fitness Schedules
The pool facilities on both the JCC Buffalo campuses of the JCC of Greater Buffalo make it possible to provide a wide range of aquatic programming. Both locations' indoor pools are open year-round for lap swims and classes. At Getzville, the Grossman Outdoor Pool Complex is open during the summer months. Whether you use the pool for exercise, recreation or to develop new water skills, the aquatics staff can accommodate your needs. Our pool temperatures are maintained between 84-86 degrees.
