CRA Recreational Youth Swim Team

CRA Recreational Youth Swim Team

The Charles River Aquatics Recreational Youth Swim Team offers athletes, interested in being part of a swim team, the opportunity to do so without the commitment of joining a USA Swimming Team*.  Athletes benefit from the positive team atmosphere which is conducive to individual development and growth, while enjoying the camaraderie and having fun.   Workouts are structured to fine-tune technique, increase endurance and practice skills for racing.  

Athletes may choose to join the CRA Recreational Swim Team independently or in conjunction with Technique & Training Tune-Up (T3U) workouts.  

*Note--Participation in the CRA Recreational Youth Swim Team is not intended to advance swimmers to the CRA Dragons Swim Team, nor does it guarantee placement on the team.  This team does not, at this time, participate in any swim meets.
