 Why join the swim team?     

It’s Fun!

             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. 


BRC swim team coordinator:  Scott O’Reilly

Appling sponsor: Ms. Cummins


Informational meeting for parents and swimmers:  January 13, 7:30 in the Appling Library.
