Adult Lap Swim

We will be offering lap swim time daily, with the exception of home meet days, from 6:30PM-7:30PM. We will not be offering morning lap swim this season as it was not well attended last season. There is a BHC  tri team that swims on Friday mornings at 5am. Contact the club for details. 

Swim Team


 

For those swimmers who can swim 2 full lengths in 2 competitive strokes.  It does not have to be pretty or perfect - they just have to be able to get across the pool.  If they aren't ready, consider our Pre Team.  If you are not certain whether your swimmer belongs on the team or pre team, please either bring your child between 5-5:30pm after May 21st, or have your child attend a pre team practice, (5:00 - 5:30), after May 29th and coaches will assess and advise.  (Registration for team and pre team are the same.)
