Charles River Aquatics is different than any other swim program. We are a competitive, technique-based program dedicated to building a solid foundation for every person to continue with swimming as a life-long sport. CRA challenges each swimmer to have the most efficient technique possible, while also supporting their growth as a person. Through each of our different programs, we have your entire family covered from Tiny Tots to Triathletes!

With an emphasis on both water safety and stroke development, CRA has a comprehensive approach to developing proper technique. Our on-deck coaching support, small class sizes, and detailed progress notes on each swimmer ensure an individualized experience with proven results. All instructors at Charles River Aquatics are provided with extensive, ongoing training in alignment with our philosophy for high-level instruction and coaching. Our positive, encouraging environment, coupled with a cumulative, tiered curriculum, assures swimmers achieve their goals in the water while maintaining an efficient technique.

The Charles River Aquatics Dragons Swim Team is a comprehensive swim program dedicated to teach, train, and motivate age group swimmers to excel at all levels of the sport. We are committed to providing a positive team atmosphere conducive to individual development and growth while fostering life skills and empowering each swimmer to achieve his or her potential within the sport. We foster sportsmanship and fair play and demand respect for others both on our team and in the larger community. With an emphasis on developing an efficient technique from an early age, our youngest training groups begin at five yeas old. Our emphasis is on teamwork within and across the program while simultaneously encouraging swimmers to enjoy the sport as individuals.
