Want to Join?

How we run
The committee is made up from volunteers, generally parents of swimmers. We always need more help! The swimmers are led by qualified coaches (Aileen & Charmion), teachers, poolside assistants (parents and carers) and a pool co-ordinator (Sarah), all of whom are volunteers. We need support for the swimmers to enter competitions so run regular timekeepers courses.
All parents are expected to get involved in some way.
Want to get involved?
If you can spare an hour or so each month we would love to hear from you. The committee meet once a month at the Sands Hotel in Burntisland. There are also other ways to help without joining the committee click here.
What does BASC aim to achieve?
Since the club was formed in 1886 it has gone from strength to strength. Our aim is to provide opportunities for young swimmers from the Burntisland area.
The club has a number of swimmers who compete at regional level in the East District and train with the Fife Area Squad.
Annually, the club competes in many competititons including the Fife and Novice Leagues. Since 1981 the club has achieved a first place 8 times for the Girls 9 and under and twice for the Boys 9 and under events with 12 first placings for the Girls 10/11 and 19 first places for the Boys 10/11 age group events. An excellent track record!
