Welcome to FitRec Swim School at BU

Boston University’s FitRec Swim School has been voted Best of Boston by both Boston Magazine and Boston Parents Paper! Learn more about what makes our swim lessons so special.

Give your infant or toddler a head start in the lifelong benefits and pleasures of swimming. Preschoolers 3 years and up learn the basics in small classes with lots of personal attention. Older children and teens can build swimming skills, strength, and confidence. Or encourage children up to age 19 to develop greater skill, power, and endurance in the water.

FitRec has two outstanding pools to accommodate every age and experience level. The Recreational Pool offers a warm, shallow teaching area that’s just right for infants and beginners. And our state-of-the-art Competition Pool gives more advanced swimmers and divers a space they can’t outgrow.
