BCYF Aquatics

At Boston Centers for Youth & Families, we offer a variety of aquatics programs at our 16 indoor pools, two outdoor pools, and beach.

BCYF aquatics programs offer the opportunity to come together to hone swimming skills and make new friends. Participants stay healthy and have fun in the water through aquatics programs such as:

  • swim lessons that teach young swimmers to be safe while having fun in the pool
  • water fitness classes for adults who want to stay active, and
  • the BCYF Citywide Swim League, sponsored by Partners HealthCare.

BCYF welcomes people of all abilities to enjoy our swimming pools, and to participate in classes and programs they offer. All of our buildings are physically accessible to people with disabilities and all swimming pools have a chair lift. If you have questions about a specific pool, please contact the community center or pool directly.
