Warm water, cool teachers!

Welcome to Catch the Wave of Pecatonica

Catch The Wave of Pecatonica, formerly J&J, is a family owned swim school that has been proudly serving the Greater Rockford area and Southern Wisconsin for over 8 years. We have taught thousands of children and are extremely proud of the success our curriculum has produced. Seeing first hand the difference we make in the community is truly a rewarding feeling and it's what drives everything we do here.


Our swim lesson program features a comprehensive year round indoor approach designed to provide a total “Aquatic Education" that you simply won't find anywhere else. We utilize a unique Survival/Self-Rescue approach to swim lessons that has been transforming the industry since 2005! Come see what all the hype is about!
