Why swim and dive

The Bon Air Blue Streaks Swim & Dive Team is a great opportunity for children of all ages to be part of a team, improve swimming & diving skills, and make friends.  During the summer, our kids could all use a constructive outlet for their energy!

  • No competitive swimming or diving experience is necessary for any age level to join, however we do require that:
    • swimmers be able to swim the length of the pool (25 yards) by themselves to ensure the safety of all swimmers
    • divers be able to swim to the side of the diving well, and be age 6 +
  • Swim & Dive Team are both a great team sport that provides individual competition opportunities, group (relay) competition opportunities in swim team, and encourages teammate support.
  • Swim & Dive Team both offer a very inexpensive summer opportunity for kids to be involved in an activity every day that is engaging and will wear them out!
