Zaban Sharks Swim Team

Under the tutelage of USA Swim/Water Safety certified instructors, children aged five through Middle School can participate in our year-round swim team, the Zaban Sharks. Swim team members learn advanced stroke technique, gain speed and endurance, while making new friends, learning the value of teamwork, how to exhibit good sportsmanship, and enjoying the exhilaration of friendly competition. 


The MJCCA’s Inclusion Program strives to provide the necessary accommodations and flexibility for youth who require additional support so they may access the transformative opportunities available at the MJCCA. Our Inclusion Team collaborates with parents, educators, and staff to determine if successful program placement is possible. These youth and their families are then supported by our Inclusion Team through program accommodations and may also receive individualized assistance. Click here for more information.
