When it comes to swimming, there is something for everyone at BSTC. Spend your summer relaxing by the pools, while your children swim and play. Improve your child’s swimming ability by enrolling them in lessons. Or, help your child build self-esteem, sportsmanship, determination, camaraderie and ever lasting friendships by signing them up for swim team. We offer:

  • A main pool with six-lanes for official swimming competitions.
  • A kiddie pool that is 1ft to 3ft deep – perfect for those little ones who are building their confidence in the water.
  • A full schedule of summer-long swimming lessons for all abilities.
