Why join the swim team?
Build lasting friendships
Excellent cardio exercise
Become a stronger swimmer
Swimmers compete against their own best times, as well as other swimmers
Practices: 3 days per week: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30 to 3:30. Students may walk to the Rec after school for practice but must be picked up promptly after practice.
Season: January 31 through April 16 (this is a shorter season than usual, but happily we are swimming again)
Swim Meets: still being decided, but probably four meets shared between BRC and other pools
Swim skill required: swim one length of the pool independently
Cost: $250 - non-BRC members; $200 - BRC members; $150 - BRC and USA swimming members.
The cost includes BRC pool rental, coached practices, meet entry fees, AMS team competition suit and a team cap, AMS swim t-shirt. Swimmers will provide practice suit, cap, googles, and fins. Parents should plan to volunteer for at least one meet.
Coach: We are pleased that Kathryn Booth has agreed to coach our team. She works at the BRC as a swim instructor and lifeguard, and is a recent graduate of U of M.
