Water aerobics exercises focus on cardiovascular and strength benefits. Participants may use buoyant water weights and noodles. Classes are suitable for all fitness levels because of the low-impact format.

Youth Pools + Aquatics

Splash Pad

When the heat can’t be beat, it’s time to hit the splash pad! Lots of colorful spraying apparatuses plus a mini slide make this a fun and popular destination for children of all ages! The splash pad is open most of the year, but does have a brief period of closure during the colder months. It can be rented out for birthday parties by members and non-members alike. Hours are subject to availability. 

Kiddy Pool

The kiddie pool at the J is one of the best in Tucson! Our kiddie pool is perfect for when you want to go for a less structured swim. Bring your family to play games, practice swim skills, or just relax poolside. 

Shade Pool

The shade pool is the best way to get out of the sunshine while you get your swim on! This covered pool area is great for young swimmers and groups. Times are subject to change; please check the reservation schedule here for most up-to-date hours.
