The Wellesley Swimming Association is a family-oriented, non-profit private swimming club established in 1974 to provide an organized program of competitive swim training and team competition for boys and girls, ages 7-18. The Association, as members of the Winter Suburban Swim League, arranges for quality training facilities, coaching and swim meets from October through March. Members represent a number of area towns.

- knowledge and understanding of the sport of competitive swimming
- stroke technique and efficiency
- training procedures and self discipline
- individual and team sportsmanship
