Polar Splash

The 3rd Annual Spring Lake Shiver Polar Splash was our best fundraiser to date. On Saturday, January 18, 2020 participants plunged into the 44-degree waters of Spring Lake in Boiling Spring Lakes, NC. Hula skirts were a popular costume choice this year and participants loved the new challenge of claiming prizes placed throughout the water. Funds raised from the Spring Lake Shiver support our drowning prevention programs throughout the year.

Join us for our 4th Annual Polar Splash next year.  Check back here later this year for registration and event info!

Swimming Lessons

Swim for life

Many people within our community often do not learn the critical water safety and swimming skills to keep them safe. The Y is working to address this important issue by offering Swim for Life, a free water safety and swimming program. With so many bodies of water throughout the Wilmington area, it is critical that we provide individuals with the basic knowledge of water safety to reduce the risk of drowning or injury.

Brunswick School of FISH

Brunswick School of FISH is a partnership between BCC Fitness & Aquatics Center and the Jack Helbig Memorial Foundation.

Swim Scholarships will be provided for local children to take swimming lessons FREE of charge that have not been able to attend due to cost. After being chosen through an application process, they will then begin their eight week session of learning basic swimming and water safety skills that will help them be safer in and around the water.
