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 is for boys and girls ages 6-17.  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 4th.  End of the season Championships will take place on Friday, April 5th

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