Welcome to the BAC!
Please read the following information carefully to be prepared for swim season!
Current Winter Practices –
In order to improve and progress, swimmers are encouraged to attend as many practices as possible. Senior Swimmers with Coach Anderson's group swim 2:30 to 4:00 Monday through Friday. The middle school group practices with Coach Paugh from 4:30 to 6:00 Monday through Friday. Age Group/Elementary swimmers practice will resume in the spring. Their practice times will be 5:00 to 6:00 Monday through Thursday. Bring a water bottle, towel for dryland, and wear an appropriate swim suit for swimming and exercise.
BAC swim practices are held at the Fletcher High School Pool. We strongly recommend a fairly heavy cover up for the Winter Season for your swimmer's comfort leaving the pool after practice is finished.
Bathing Suits –
Our team color is black, therefore all BAC swimmers who are participating in swim meets are required to wear black suits. They can have a logo on them but please make sure a black suit is worn at all meets. For practices, the swimmer may wear any color suit, but is required to wear a BAC cap (if applicable).
Each BAC swimmer will receive a BAC shirt as a part of their registration and team fees. Shirts for parents, siblings and grandparents will also be available for purchase. We encourage our BAC families to wear their shirts to swim meets to show team support.
Additional Caps –
BAC swimmers participating in swim meets can purchase BAC caps. You will have the opportunity to purchase swim caps with your swimmers last name printed on it later in the season.
As a parent, your role is to encourage your swimmer as they grow in the sport of swimming, while also respecting and honoring coaching staff. Please be positive and uplifting as we create a team culture of family here at BAC.
Swim meets and competitions cannot take place without our parents and volunteers. There are many different opportunities and ways for you to get involved and volunteer all year long. It is expected that all parents participate and volunteer in some way, whether it be at meets/competitions or in other ways. Before each swim meet you will have an opportunity to sign up and work an event.
Swim meets –
You will need to sign your swimmer up for each meet that you would like them to participate in. There will be sign-up sheets at the pool deck prior to the meet (2-3 weeks prior) for you to sign and select events.
Heat sheets –
Heat sheets will be available for purchase at each swim meet. They are anywhere from $2 to $10 depending on the meet.
