Aquatics Programming Across Our Clubs

At our Fox Point, Wanskuck, and South Side Clubhouses, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence feature indoor, heated, 25-meter pools. Under the watchful eye of trained and certified lifeguards, parents have the comfort of knowing their children are safe and learning to swim at their own pace. Recreational swim is incorporated into Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence summer camps, after-school, and teen programs, and members at sites without pool facilities are offered free transportation to South Side, Wanskuck, and Fox Point. Swim lessons, as well as American Red Cross First Aid, CPR, and Lifeguarding courses are also offered during select times of year at at least one of our Clubhouses. Our pool facilities include changing areas, lockers, and showers, and our pools are open year-round! Call or stop by your local Clubhouse for more information.

Swim Team

Advanced swimmers are encouraged to join our Swim Team at the Fox Point Clubhouse. Each year, between October and March, more than 45 members ages 6 to 17 compete regularly in meets with local and regional Boys & Girls Clubs from across Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Our swim team routinely medals at the RIMA Championships in the spring, and has recently sent swimmers to the Boys & Girls Club National Swimming Championships in St. Petersburg, Florida. 

Be part of our competitive Swim Team and improve your skills with our certified coaches and lifeguards. Our 2017-18 season begins Monday, September 18 and open enrollment continues through March. Practices are Mondays-Thursday 4:30 – 7:00 p.m. ages 5 and older.

Scholarships are available for both swim lessons and swim team membership. Call or stop by the Fox Point Clubhouse for more information!
