Bern Township Swim Team: Welcome
Bern Township (BT) Swim Team is a summer competitive swim program. The program emphasizes proper swimming techniques through development of the four competitive strokes, building endurance and time improvements. The program provides growth through team spirit, goal setting and social activities.
BT Swim Team utilizes a 25 meter, five lane, 5ft-12ft deep, outdoor pool for practices and home dual meets. The team also travels to other pools for away dual meets and invitationals. BT Swim Team competes against six other teams in the Atlantic Division of the Berks County Swimming Association (BCSA) http://www.berkscountyswimming.com/
BT Swim Team has 5 experienced coaches who provide superb instructions to over 70 swimmers ranging in age from 5 to 18 years old. BT Swim Team does not have an age limitation however some meets do require swimmers be under 19 years old. Swimmers should be able to swim one length of the pool freestyle without the use of a floatation device.
