The JCC Aquatics Center offers year-round aquatics programming, including swim team, swim lessons, lap swimming, water fitness and recreational swimming. The David Zimerman Pool has a retractable cover, making it possible to swim outdoors during summer months and indoors during colder months. Our heated, handicapped accessible, 6-lane, 25- yard chlorinated pool features the only 1-meter competition-grade Duraflex diving board in Asheville. The depth of water begins with a 3 feet 6 inch shallow end and increases to 12 feet in the deep end. The JCC Aquatics Center is equipped with men’s and women’s restroom/changing rooms that include handicapped accessible hot showers and lockers, in addition to a non-gender family restroom/changing room. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, pool members have access to the Pearlman-Rothman Family Plaza that includes an outdoor pavilion with gas grills and zero entry baby pool with splash pad, along with additional picnic space and a wall ball court.

*The enclosure on the JCC’s David Zimerman pool that allows us to offer year-round aquatics programming was made possible by an incredibly generous donation on behalf of the Asheville High School Swim & Dive Team. As such, the JCC pool is Asheville High School’s home pool, for which they have exclusive use 90 minutes a day on weekday evenings during the high school swim season (November 1 – February 15).
