JOIN BELMONT AQUATIC TEAM (BAT)
We offer year-round and seasonal membership--spanning the spectrum for those who can barely swim across the pool to those with D-1 collegiate aspriations.
We believe there is a spot on our team for those looking to pick up an extra activity to those who are serious about swimming in college as a Division-I student-athlete.
Every new swimmer must attend a tryout and be accepted onto the team before registering. For more information on tryouts, click here.
