BCC Barracudas Swim Team
Each summer, children come together to create an experience of recreation, fitness, and entertainment that helps to weave the fabric of community. For the children who participate in summer swim leagues, valuable, even lifesaving skills are acquired. For their parents, it's an opportunity to get to know neighbors within our immediate community.
The BCC Swim Team operates under the following principles:
- To provide an environment that develops a love for swimming and fitness in each participant.
- To offer a positive competitive experience for both swimmer and parent.
- To provide coaching that allows new, as well as accomplished athletes, to improve their strokes and times throughout the season.
- To develop principles of teamwork, team spirit, and sportsmanship throughout all age groups on the team.
Practices are held each morning, Monday through Friday (practice times are subject to swimmer ability level). Meets are usually held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All swimmers also have the option of competing in League Championships at the end of July and for qualifying swimmers, the State Championship is held in the beginning of August.
Level II: 11 Years & Up
7:45 AM – 9:30 AM
Level I: 10 Years & Under
9:30AM – 10:45 AM
Stroke School: Ages 5 & Up
11:00 AM – 11:45 AM
While we enjoy success in our league, we always make sure that fun and sportsmanship are the first priority. Each Friday is Team Building Day where the team partakes in activities and games before a bagel brunch.
Registration for 2017 is now open!
Registration meetings will be held at the pool for parents to have the opportunity to get their swimmers to try on suits and apparel for sizing, meet the coaches, and ask questions. These registration meetings are highly recommended but if you can't make it, registration forms can be submitted to Rachel Grandon in hard copy by mail or dropped off in the Business Office. They can also be submitted electronically via email, Rachel.Grandon@burlingtoncountryclub.org.
Unlike many youth sports leagues and teams, our success and the efficiency with which we can complete our meets and championships depends on a team of parent volunteers from both the home as well as the visiting teams. Whether this is your first year or you are returning to us, please don't hesitate to get your feet wet on deck this season.

Officiating is a way to help support your children’s activity. Officiating is voluntary and offers the best seat in the house.
