Swimming Lesson


Come visit the UMass Boston swimming pool on the lower level of the Clark Athletic Center. The pool has six lanes, is 25 yards wide and 25 meters long, and has a diving well. Swimming lessons and lifeguarding are available at various times throughout the year.  For the recreational-minded, we also have a pool basketball hoop and aquatic group exercise classes.  

Certification Courses

In addition to Lifeguarding, we now offer CPR/AED training and Certified Pool Operator training.  Click here for a schedule and more information.
