Bower Hill Swim Club News

Carly Beer Joins Bower Hill Staff

Bower Hill Swim Club is pleased to introduce Carly Beer.  She is a Mt. Lebanon resident of 5 years, and loves to teach all levels of swimming. She has been an American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructor (WSI) for over 15 years, and a Certified Lifeguard for almost 20 years. Carly came to Pittsburgh a few years ago from Portsmouth, VA while serving on Active Duty in the U.S. Coast Guard (total active time of 10.5 years). She is joined by her husband Justin, and two children Reagan (11) and Zachary (10). 


Her favorite class to teach is a Parent & Child swim lesson where she teaches the parents how to safely start to teach their own children how to swim and have fun in the water, even to parents who are non-swimmers themselves. Carly has a very unique style of teaching which incorporates a very playful imagination to keep swimming extra fun, an encouraging motivational drive to help students push themselves further, and a caring nature that makes both the teacher and students excited to come back next time. 


Carly will be coordinating and teaching our swim clinics and parent/child classes.  We hope that you will come join us in the fun this year at Bower Hill Pool and meet Ms. Carly!

Attention all Swimmers.
The BHSC swim team needs you!  If you are between the ages of 5 - 18 and are interested in having a great time this summer while improving your swimming skills, then the swim team is what you are looking for. 

Swimming is a great way to exercise and train for your fall sports!  We offer 4-5 practices a week.  The best way to improve as a swimmer is to attend practices regularly; however, we do not expect all swimmers would be able to attend all practices due to conflicts with other sports, vacations and other activities.

Kyle Lynch will be returning as one of our coaches.  We have also hired a new coach to help Kyle this season!  Her name is Haley Vaughn.  She is a college graduate and swam competitively in college.  She has prior swim team coaching experience and is an excellent teacher.  

Our first practice will be on Monday, June 3rd from 7:00 - 8:00 pm.

The swim season is short, only 8 weeks!  Our first swim meet is on 6/20, so not much time to get the swimmers ready!  Because of this, we start practicing while school is still in session.  These practices will be from 7:00 - 8:00 pm.  Once school lets out, we will practice from 11:00 am - Noon on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  The swim meets are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, starting at 6:30 pm.
