  2012 Summer SSSC Red Division Champions & Winter 2012-13 SSSC Red Division Champions!

The Burbank Swim Association (BSA) is a year-round developmental and competitive age-group swimming program for swimmers ages five through high school. The mission of BSA is to embrace all levels of swimmers, providing each and every athlete with the best possible environment and resources that will allow athletes to progress from novice to the highest level of competition.

The BSA coaching staff strives to instill in young swimmers an understanding of and appreciation for such concepts as high self-esteem, personal accountability, sportsmanship, teamwork, self-discipline, goal setting and goal achievement. These ideals will translate into each athlete’s success in training, competition and life as they grow and develop into adults.

The Stingrays swim at Reavis High School, located at 6034 W. 77th St, Burbank, IL. We are proud members of USA Swimming and the South Suburban Swim Conference.

The Burbank Swim Association (Stingrays swim team) was formed in 1973.
The purpose is to train young swimmers through our progressive instructional swim program and prepare them for a competitive swim program. In our program, we teach swimmers refined stroke techniques and other basics of competition swimming while improving their endurance. We are a swim team, and as such, we have the children participate in meets to help chart their progress over time. The parents and the head coach together should determine if the child is ready for competition.  We expect that if you sign up, please show up!

 

TRANSPORTATION
The team does not provide transportation to away meets. Parents are encouraged to carpool with others. Please refer to the "Schedule Page" for directions to up-coming meets.


OFFICIALS

At all meets, there are timers, stroke and turn judges, starters, and a referee. Sometimes, we will have officials. The job for these people is to assure that the competition is run safely and fairly. Occasionally, a meet official will have to disqualify (DQ) a swimmer for a false start or stroke infraction. The swimmer receives no official time in that event. Explain to your swimmer that this is nothing to be upset about. Even Olympic swimmers are disqualified during their meets.  We are always looking for parents to become officials, so watch for announcements for training clinics and think about joining as an official. A good way to begin is to work as a timer at our home meets.  See you there!

 

The Burbank Stingrays are a proud member of Illinois Swimming.
