This competitive club is devoted to developing strong values, building self-esteem and enabling swimmers age 6-18 to meet their full potential. Karishim Swim Club is a supportive community of athletes and a great way to make new friends and be part of a team.

The team participates in US Swim Meets and JCC Championship Meets under the supervision of certified coaches.

There are two sessions: Fall (August through March) and Spring (mid-March through July). In-pool and dry-land practices are held at the Leventhal-Sidman Center on weekdays and at Regis College in Weston on Sundays.

Private lessons are available with our coaches.

Kids ages 6-10 who love to swim and want to have fun can join our Pre-Swim Club.

JCC membership is required for Karishim Swim Club participants. JCC membership is not required for Pre-Swim Club.
