Aquatic Programs


Lessons, Classes and Swim Teams for All Ages and All Seasons.

Aquatic Classes

Dive right into our aquatic classes and build cardiovascular fitness and strength. Just like swimming, our water aerobics classes are easy on your joints, yet challenging enough to help you reach new levels of fitness. Because of their low-impact format, water aerobics classes are suitable for every age and fitness level, from beginning exercisers through elite athletes. Participants may bring and use their own water shoes and gloves.

BHRC Aquatic Classes:

WATER YOGA (Sally's Class) 

WATER FITNESS (Heather's Class)

WATER FITNESS (Kay's Class) 



BEARACUDA Swim Team (After School)

Swim Club seeks to provide a healthy, fun, and encouraging swim environment that trains and teaches swimmers ages 6-18. We foster good health, character, and sportsmanship, along with helping swimmers reach their fullest potential in and out of the water.

Swimming is an essential lifesaving skill, plus an excellent form of exercise. Swim Club helps kids become more active by getting in the water, swimming laps, and playing games. We also educate kids about swimming nutrition and the benefits of keeping our bodies healthy.

BEARACUDA Swim Team (Summer)

The Bearacuda Swim Team for kids ages 5-18 years runs from the beginning of June through the end of July. The Bearacuda Swim Team competes in the Blue Ridge Swim League against local clubs in the Asheville/Hendersonville/Waynesville area. This program creates an opportunity for kids to participate in swim meets throughout the summer. The program provides a healthy, fun, and encouraging swim environment with an emphasis on training and teaching all levels of swimmers proper stroke technique, streamlining, and balance in the water. Fostering good health, character, and sportsmanship, along with helping swimmers reach their fullest potential in and out of the water, are some of the goals this team strives to reach, along with teaching kids a love of swimming.
