Year Round Team

 

 

Welcome to Boise Swim Club (BSC).  Our website will provide you with information about our team, our mission statement, forms, and calendar of events.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact us on our contact page.

 

Boise Swim Club teaches the art of swimming utilizing innovative training techniques complete with dryland cross training at the core. Combining strength training on land and drill work in the water, BSC provides a method for complete training.

 

Boise Swim Club (BSC) focuses on individual abilities and creates a specialty program that causes dramatic athletic improvements.  BSC uses dryland as a means of developing core strength and preventing injuries.  This method of cross training yields a better athlete as a whole.  Drill work and fast swimming are the backbone of the water time.  Training is a combination of dryland cross training and swimming drills, endurance, and speed training.      

 

Practice

We train four days per week (Monday-Thursday) at the Boise State University Kinesiology Pool.  It is recommended that swimmers attend as many workouts as possible for maximum improvement.  Training is a combination of stretching exercises, dryland cross training, and swimming drills:

 

     30 minutes - Stretching & Dryland cross-training

     75 minutes - Water work-out with stroke development

 

Swimmers of all ages are welcome to join as we expand from junior high and high school swimmers only.  Swimmers will be evaluated on an individual basis.  Swimmers must know the 2 basic strokes (freestyle, back) and must be able to swim 25 yards without stopping.
