FALL/WINTER SEASON WILL START MID SEPTEMBER 2021

 

 Welcome New Head Coach Carrie Rink for the Upcoming 2021-2022 Fall/Winter Season.

  

The BBSC BOARD IS EXCITED TO INTRODUCE OUR NEW HEAD COACH Carrie Rink. She is by far not new to our club so many already are familiar with Carrie. Here is a little more about her!

I am originally from the area but moved to Morris at age 5 and started swimming at age 7 for the Morris Marlins. Moving back to the area in 6th grade, I swam for the Bradley-Bourbonnais Dolphins ages 11-14. At the age of 12, I qualified for the Junior Olympics in the 50 Breaststroke. I did not swim through high school though, as other sports took this place & I went to Bishop McNamara HS. But after becoming lifeguard certified at age 14 and teaching swim lessons at 16, I couldn’t stay out of the water! I then started coaching at age 19-21 for the Dolphins.

In 2003, I moved to the Los Angeles area, teaching private swim lessons at client's homes. As I moved around for 6 years in California and Arizona, I continued to teach lessons to all ages and aqua fitness classes. After having 2 children, (Carson Quigley-Sophomore and Charlie Quigley-8th Grade), I found myself moving back to the area again to be near family.

Both of my boys’ swim for the Dolphins and now Carson swims for the BB High school team as well. I have been coaching for the Dolphins again for the past 7 years on and off. This year,

I am proud to be your 2021/22 Head Coach, excited to add my twist and goals for this club as we grow. My Motto is basically- “I’m a firm believer in good technique as the rest will come as they grow”. I often tell the kid’s you are the “Little engine that could”.

Outside of swimming I am now the Director of Youth Ministry at Maternity BVM Parish full time. I have been married now to my wonderful husband Ryan Rink for over 6 blessed years. Together we have 6 children and 3 grandchildren. In our spare time, we love to travel, boating, & any outdoor activities. Water sports are a must!!

 

 

About Us

Bradley-Bourbonnais Swim Club is a year-round competitive youth swim team created to accommodate kids in the area from ages 5-18. Our practice facility encompasses an 8-lane, 25-yard short course pool with a movable bulkhead that separates the competition pool from an additional warm-up area.  We are registered with both Illinois Swimming, USA Swimming, and the South Suburban Swim Conference.  Our swimmers join us from Bradley, Bourbonnais, Limestone, Kankakee, and Manteno to name a few. We encourage our swimmers to commit to excellence every day - in the pool and out. We focus on age and ability level-appropriate training and proper swim technique, building skills to become better swimmers and stronger competitors. BBSC Dolphins is a great way for kids to meet new friends, be a part of a team, stay healthy, and most importantly, have fun! We are a parent-run organization with an elected board of directors who are focused on bringing the best swimming has to offer to our area.
