New England's premier place for swim lessons.
Charles River Aquatics is committed to helping children develop life skills through swim lessons. Our objective is to provide an atmosphere conducive to development and personal growth for individuals of all ages. We teach water safety, foster sportsmanship and fair play and demand respect for others in the class and in the larger community, while instilling in our participants a love for the sport.
Frequently Asked Questions
Everyone learns at different rates. We emphasize side breathing in all levels, as this is the most efficient way to swim. With practice, the swimmer will become more comfortable and familiar with the concept and eventually learn the technique.
In order to improve learning, we want to minimize distractions. Ultimately, you will see that this is best for students.
One piece suits for girls and shorts with minimal drag for boys are required. Please also avoid suits with sleeves or wet suits. Our goal is to teach swimming and we do not want the garments to impede the movement or progress. Girls or boys with long hair should wear caps. While this is not required, hair can get in the way and without proper vision, a swimmer may be distracted. All long hair MUST be tied back if a cap is not worn. For comfortable caps, please purchase a lycra or silicone cap.
