BASC Team Sponsorship Program


Bearsharktopus Aquatics (BASC) is a local swim club in the middle of its fourth season as a team and as a member of USA Swimming. This team has grown quickly through its induction to competitive swimming, covering the the area from Springfield and the surrounding communities all the way through Southern Illinois, to our furthest satellite facility in the Hillsboro and Litchfield areas. BASC is a technique-based competitive swim program that is dedicated to the education and support of self-invested youth swimmers.  In our urban and suburban areas, this program was created to give swimmers of all levels a chance to compete. Prior to the existence of BASC, youth athletes were being pushed out of programs that were outgrowing their facilities, and swimmers were unable to train or not allowed on teams due to unlearned skills. In our rural communities, swimmers suffered from lack of training and the inability to keep programs running smoothly financially. BASC has since improved these athletes and their programs greatly, producing swimmers at the Regional, State, Zone & National levels of competition. The team even sent its first three graduating seniors to college this fall.


Donor support will allow our program to conquer the hurdles of a rapidly growing team, enabling us to secure the future success of our athletes. Additional funds raised through this years campaign will continue to strengthen our indoor short course season. Our Corporate Sponsor Program is available in several different packages that correspond to differing amounts of donations. All packages above the Bronze level will be a minimum of a two year agreement. Below are the different levels of Sponsorships and the benefits they offer.
