The Burke Centre Swim Club (BCSC) is comprised of two teams; the
Burke Centre Penguins and the Burke Centre Stingers. Each
team has approximately 225 swimmers. Neither team has a dive
team. Both teams are considered equal (there is no "A" or "B"
team). The Penguins & the Stingers exist under a single
charter, but they operate completely independently with individual
team presidents and boards. The Burke Centre Conservancy
maintains five pools throughout the Burke
community. The home pool for the Penguins is the Landings
Pool. The home pool for the Stingers is the Ponds Pool.
Visit both teams'
websites to learn more. When you register to
swim, you request a particular team. Once swimmers are
assigned to a team, they remain on that team. Every effort is
made to honor requests, but understand that the club attempts to
balance the total swimmers, age-groups, and abilities of both
teams. For this reason, it may be necessary, on occasion, to
move a swimmer to a particular team. To keep the teams
balanced, changing teams, after you have been assigned, is not
permitted. The Burke Centre Swim Club participates in the
Colonial Swimming League (CSL)
