The BMA Brookies Swim Team offers training and practice groups for swimmers of different ages and ability levels. The BMA Brookies Swim Team offers age-specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual, and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

Each year in late August or early September we organize a Splash camp, where new swimmers can try our team for a week. We also invite swimmers to try us out for 1 week at any time during the season before signing up and paying dues. Please click here to send us an email request for more information.
