Charles River Aquatics Beginning Swim Lessons and Basic Water SafetyCharles River Aquatics 

Join CRA for Beginning Swim Lessons & Basic Water Safety!

Charles River Aquatics (CRA) has partnered with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) as a site for the 2023 Water Safety Initiative.  CRA will provide beginner swimming lessons with the goal of creating a safer environment for all patrons at public beaches and pools across the Commonwealth. 

At CRA, we believe that knowing how to swim is a basic life skill– one that everyone should have for safety and for fun.  CRA is offering 4 day crash courses* in Basic Water Safety June 5-29, 2023 to prepare for the summer season ahead.

The Water Safety Initiative lessons offered by CRA are funded with a grant from the DCR.  There is no cost to participants

This program is open to anyone age 4 and up.

Located at the Boston Sports Institute, 900 Worcester St., Wellesley

Dates:  June 5-8; 12-15; 19-22; 26-29
