Aquatics Center

Swim Year-Round

Indoor Swimming PoolOur heated, six-lane indoor 25-meter swimming pool has a graduated depth from 3.5’ to 8’. A permanent access ramp provides 0’ to 3.5’ depth access for use by individuals in wheelchairs, small children, and others with special needs. The pool temperature varies between 83 and 85 degrees.  In the locker room, there are lockers, showers and saunas available.

The J-Fit Health Club’s Aquatics Center offers 45-minute lane reservations beginning on the half hour.  Use of the pool is included for all J-Family Members. J-Journey and J-Pass holders may purchase $10 Day Passes for access to lap swim and free swim in the pool.

Reservations for all aquatics programs are required in advance through the My J app which can be downloaded to your mobile phone as well as accessed online.

If you must cancel, please update your reservation in the app, call the front desk at 703.323.0880 or email Aquatics@theJ.org so a member on the waiting list is able to swim.

 

Family Swimming Sessions:
Due to the increasing popularity and usage of the pool, here is a quick reminder of our lane reservation policies and procedures.

There are not designated family swim hours, therefore, it is important that each family reserve two spaces for any 45-minute session in order to reserve a lane for the family (more than one swimmer). To reserve a dedicated lane, reservations must be made for two swimmers (ages 13+) because there are two spaces available per lane.

To reserve a dedicated lane, reservations must be made for two swimmers (ages 13+). A parent can chaperone their entire family without the need for the second adult, but the reservation policy requires two swimmers ages 13+ to reserve the lane.

If you are making these reservations through the "My J" app, you will need two logins with two separate emails.

Questions? Please email Aquatics@theJ.org or contact Guest Services at 703.323.0880 and we will assist you with reserving your space.

Important Note:
If a family signs up with only one reservation and brings a child or family to swim, your party may be asked to leave unless there are openings in the reservation system.

If you have any issues making the reservations, please email Aquatics@theJ.org or call the Aquatics Director at 703.537.3055. On weekends, please contact Guest Services Desk at 703.323.0880.

J-Pass Member Families:
For J-Pass members who want to pay for a $10 day pass to use the pool, you must create and have two accounts – a My J account and a j.force account. Please purchase a Day Pass.

NOTE: If you register for a class or session and are unable to attend, please update your reservation in the My J app or call 703.323.0880 to inform the J that you will not be attending.

Who can swim?

All members are welcome to sign up for lane reservations which are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are mandatory and can be made up to 7 days in advance. Please use the My J App or call Guest Services at 703.323.0880 to make a reservation.

Children 12 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult in the water at all times. Reservations under two separate names are recommended to guarantee one entire lane for family unit use. Otherwise, your family unit risks not being accommodated.

Please note that during Open Swim, there may also be other programs running concurrently such as Water Aerobics, Private or Group Swim Classes, Aqua Personal Training or other programs. ​The My J App reservation system is adjusted accordingly to show true capacity.
