Swim Team & Club Details


Summer Swim Team

BSA offers a high quality Summer Swim Team. Our hope is that being a part of our team grants each of our swimmers with individual improvement of stroke, fitness and technique, a better understanding and appreciation of team work, some exposure to healthy competition, and an overall wonderful summer with family and friends.

Swimmers must be between 5-18 years of age and must have reached a minimum of BSA’s Level 4, Pufferfish.

If you are not familiar with your level, you will need to have your swimmer evaluated. This can be done at 7pm from Monday to Thursday at 3311 Allen Rd.

Our job is to make sure our swimmers have fun and learn a lot. It is important to encourage them that swimming is always about beating your personal best and continuing to improve on your technique and your times. Help us to teach them to be the best they can be, with hard work and dedication. Please note, you are not required to attend swim meets though we do encourage it as it is a great experience for our swimmers. This will help build on their confidence, give them benchmarks for them to reach personal best goals and it is a lot of fun. We will have more information on meets as we move through the season.

Note on CAU - As CAU is a University, there are some stricter rules for our arrival. You will park in the street and make your way to the front gate, we ask that you please congregate near the front gate prior to your practice start time. CAU still requires a representative (coach/nominated parent) to escort the entire group. This will be done approx 5 - 10 min prior to your start time to allow time to reach the pool and for swimmers to join the warm up, so we recommend arriving with plenty of time.

  • Location 2: Bakersfield Racquet Club - BRC (1660 Pine St, Bakersfield, CA 93301)

Note on BRC for those new to the racquet club - parking is in the streets. Please make your way through the front gates, turn right and follow the path as far as you can go, the bathrooms will be on your left and the pool gate on your right. You are welcome to make your way in on arrival, they have just asked that we do not touch the gym equipment currently in the pool area.
