Au-Some Swimmer

Registration for the winter 2016 session of Au-Some Swimmers is open. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Buffalo (JCC) received grant funding from the Variety Club of Buffalo and Erie County Youth Bureau. These awards will allow the JCC to continue to offer the program at a discounted rate for students who need grant funding to participate. Thanks to your support of the program, the interest in Au-Some Swimmers continues to boom. While we have grant funding, there is unfortunately not enough to give to anyone. There are grant funded seats and non-grant funded seats for each swim lesson time. If you are able to afford to participate without the assistance of grant funding, they ask that you sign up for a not grant funded lesson.
