The Brigantine Greenheads Swim Team (Age Group, Masters, and Special Olympics) (BGH) want to thank you in advance for taking the time to help our swimmers. The BGH Swim Team is a non-profit team that was established in 2001. Starting out with just five USA swimmers we have now grown to 40 USA swimmers in the New Jersey (NJ) LSC and 80 in our Greater South Jersey Swim League (GSJSL) team ranging from 3 to 18 years of age. Our swimmers come from all over Atlantic County and race competitively all across the country. Our Greenheads are the hardest working, dedicated group of children that you could ever meet.

Last year, the Greenheads were able to help a great bunch of kids by creating the Greenheads Special Olympics Swim Team. These kids swam their first meet in March 2018 and are looking forward to growing their team.

This year, the Greenheads grew more by adding a Masters Swim Team. Our goal is to be able to host a Masters swim meet in the near future.

Our Greenheads have accomplished great things, especially in recent years. We have athletes that have qualified for the Speedo Sectionals, the Eastern Zone Meet, the Open Water Zones , the Middle Atlantic Junior Olympics, and the New Jersey Junior Olympics; where many medals have been won. Our GSJSL team finished third place in the league last winter and is a great program to get swimmers interested in taking their swimming to the USA level. We are now a Level 2 USA recognized club and our program is developing into a powerhouse in the very competitive South Jersey Market.

As we move in this direction, great things are happening for our team. In order to purchase the necessary equipment needed, for these USA, GSJSL, Masters, and Special Olympic events we are starting a massive fundraising plan for this year. With the funds raised our team will be able to purchase a Colorado 6 timing console, timing pads, plungers, and all the necessary cables associated with this equipment. In addition, to supporting our own teams this equipment will help the Absegami High School swim team. They practice and compete at our facility.

Three years ago was our last Lap-A-Thon where your generosity helped us purchase new lane lines, pace clocks, and a portable scoreboard.

Thank you in advance for your donation and helping us reach our goal to provide a great service to local athletes!
