ALL BNSC family members are part of the Booster Club!  The club’s purpose is to support the team and to bring family members, swimmers, and coaches together. Meetings are normally held monthly, and topics vary from planning of meets, social gatherings, open discussions, and education from our coaches. Every swim family member is encouraged to attend as many monthly meetings as possible.

Parent meetings are usually held during practice times.  Please review the team calendar for dates and times. Meetings during the school year typically start around 6-6:30pm in the pool foyer of either NCHS or NCWHS (West).  Meetings are not usually held in summer months during school break.
