Swim League Seeking Youth Participants


Swim Team Experience Not Necessary

Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF,) the City of Boston’s largest youth and human service agency, is currently enrolling youth participants in a citywide competitive swimming league.

The annual league involves boys and girls ages 6-15. Participants must be able to swim one length of the swimming pool. The league is a developmental league and serves as an introduction to swimming competitively for most young swimmers so experience on a swim team is not necessary. The regular season meets are held on Fridays at 6:00 p.m., beginning on January 8th and the last one is scheduled for March 26th .

To sign up to participate, contact the center directly or call Boston Centers for Youth & Families at 617-635-4920 x2150 and speak with Tony Rosario, Aquatics Manager.
