TRAINING ATHLETES....BUILDING CHARACTER....CREATING LEADERS

Welcome!

 

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. BSC uses dry land as a means of developing core strength to prevent injuries. Combining strength training on land and drill work in the water, BSC provides a method for complete training.  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 dry land cross training, swimming drills, endurance, and speed training.
