BCYF Swim League Now Recruiting Youth Participants

BCYF Swim League Now Recruiting 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, age 6-17, in a citywide competitive swimming league.

Every year, over 300 young swimmers participate in the BCYF Swim League. In addition to improving swimming skills, participants make new friends and enjoy visits to other Boston swimming pools for meets. The league is a developmental league and serves as an introduction to competitive swimming so experience on a swim team is not necessary but participants must be able to swim one length of the pool. The regular season meets are held on Fridays at 6 p.m. beginning on November 13. The Championship Meet will take place on Saturday, March 26.

To sign up to participate, e-mail or call the contact listed below or contact Antonio Rosario, BCYF Aquatics Manager, at Antonio.Rosario@boston.gov or 617-635-4920 ext. 2150.
