BALCONES COUNTRY CLUB SHARKS
Welcome to the Balcones Country Club Sharks Swim Team. As of the 2017 summer swim season, we will be entering our 40th year! As a team, we strive to instill in kids a love for competitive swimming in a fun and enriching atmosphere. Our coaching staff and parent volunteers are key in bringing this vision to life.
Our team consists of 170+ swimmers, ages 5 to 17 years old. We are located in Northwest Austin at Balcones Country Club. The BCC Sharks have two swimming pools that we use for training and racing.
The Sharks Swim Team is a member of the non-profit Northwest Swim Circuit – a group of 13 member swim teams. The swim season is approximately 10 weeks long, beginning in May and culminating with our Divisional and Invitational Meets in July. We have an intra-squad Blue & White Meet, followed by 5 to 6 dual meets either home or away. The Sharks season finishes with an awards banquet the Tuesday after the Invitational Meet.
Let us know if you’d like to be a part of the Sharks Swim Team.
