Welcome to the Burke Centre Swim Club






The Burke Centre Swim Club (BCSC) is comprised of two teams; the Burke Centre Penguins and the Burke Centre Stingers. Each team has approximately 200 swimmers. Neither team has a dive team. Both teams are considered equal (there is no "A" or "B" team). The Penguins & the Stingers exist under a single charter, but they operate completely independently with individual team presidents and boards. The Burke Centre Conservancy maintains five pools throughout the Burke community. The home pool for the Penguins is the Landings Pool. The home pool for the Stingers is the Ponds Pool. Visit both teams’ websites (links at right) to learn more. When you register to swim, you may request a particular team. Once swimmers are assigned to a team, they remain on that team. Every effort is made to honor requests, but understand that the club attempts to balance the total swimmers, age-groups, and abilities of both teams. For this reason, it may be necessary, on occasion, to place a swimmer on a particular team. To keep the teams balanced, changing teams, after you have been assigned,
is not permitted.

The Burke Centre Swim Club participates in the Colonial Swimming League (CSL) Colonial Swim League website

The Summer Swim 2020 Swim Season is Over!!!!

Stinger and Penguin Families,
  Thank you to all the coaches, swimmers, and families for all the efforts that allowed the teams to have an amazing summer.  Both teams were able to hold a "practice only" season with limited inter-team meets.  While a much different season than normal, it was still a great year!

PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH YOUR ONLINE REGISTRATION: 

Registration for the Burke Centre Swim Club (both Penguins and Stingers) is done online. To maintain safe swimming conditions, both Penguin and Stinger swim teams may limit the number of swimmers on the teams. In addition, specific age-groups may be closed if numbers within the group become unmanageable. Online registration for returning team members begins on February 1st, 2021. Online registration for NEW swimmers begins on March 1st, 2021.

NOTE: If a swimmer has swam competitively in the past, they will be asked to provide their best times as part of the online registration. Please have that information available before beginning the online registration process. Be reminded that swimmers must also be members of the Burke Centre pools to participate on the swim team. Go to Burke Centre Pool Membership Applications, Pool Locations, & Pool Rules for pool membership information.
 

ALL swimmers new to the BCSC (age 10 and younger), including any siblings that have not participated before, will be evaluated prior to the first day of practice. If a swimmer's ability does not meet the requirements, then they will not be allowed to continue swimming during Phase 1 and will not have to pay the season fee. All swimmers MUST have a Burke Centre Pool Pass to access the pool at all times.
