Biddy basketball is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills.  Every child gets to play and the games are safe, exciting and fun. We encourage fair play, positive competition, and family involvement. We utilize volunteer coaches to focus on participation and fun! We encourage parents to volunteer as head coach, assistant coach or scorekeeper. While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and every game begins with a prayer or devotion.

Whether you want to swim laps on your own or do your own fitness workout in the pool, we have special times set aside for these activities. Please check our current schedules HERE for the Warm Water Deck Pool and the Austin Francis Cool Water Pool.

Lap Swim

Lap Swimming Tips: Please enter the pool from the shallow end. To avoid accidents, when entering an occupied lane, please get the first swimmer’s acknowledgment that you are there.

Directions for Adult Lap: If there are 1 or 2 swimmers in a lane, they may elect to split the lane in half. The entrance of a third person immediately changes the lane to “circle” swimming format.

Speed: Please choose a lane with swimmers that most nearly match your speed.

Reservations: At this time we are asking members to reserve their swim times in advance to assist us with our COVID-19 capacity guidelines. Reservations are available on our homepage, through our mobile app or by contacting member services.

Body Composition Analyzer from Biospace

Monitoring your weight is not enough. It can be misleading when used as an indicator of progress and health. Your body is a complex structure made of different components: water, fat and muscle. In 30 seconds, you will receive a detailed results sheet of the components that are the key in understanding more about your body. It is a more accurate method of bio-impedance analysis, and it is 98% accurate to the dexa scan.
