Meet Victoria

Victoria WelchPrior to joining the team at BAC, I lifeguarded and taught swim lessons at home in Palouse, Washington for five years. Before that, I swam competitively! My favorite stock is freestyle. I moved up to Bellingham for school, but now I’m taking a year off. I love exploring Bellingham and finding the best restaurants to eat at.

Chinese Medicine

Did you know there?s a lot more to taking care of yourself than exercise and nutrition? Perhaps you’ve tried it all and feel like something is still missing, or maybe you’re interested in learning more about the cupping trend that is all over social media. Regardless, there are many options for taking your health to the next level.

Recently I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with Kelly Hoeffner of Resilient Acupuncture to learn more about her affordable treatment modalities. Having been in private practice for 10 years, Kelly has a wealth of knowledge and experience in Chinese Medicine. Her modalities include more than acupuncture but also extend to herbalism, fire cupping, tuina massage, and others. Just a few examples of benefits include relief from anxiety/depression, reduced pain/stiffness, increased energy, and fewer injuries! It is truly amazing work.

A bit from Kelly on Traditional Chinese Medicine:
“Chinese Medicine has been around for 3,000 years. It is one of the most effective and affordable health care systems in the world. I am excited to be a part of this astounding medicine. I also love to educate patients about how they can use this information to help amplify their life. I am always available for a free consultation. I hope you continue to learn, continue to improve your health and live the life you were meant to.”
Kelly Hoeffner L.Ac. M.S.TCM

Swim Team Interest?

Is my swimmer ready for Swim Team? The first thing you should know about BAC’s Swim Team program is that we are focused on progress – we want to improve our swimmers’ strength, speed, endurance, and technique. All aspects are important to achieving progress in this complex and rewarding sport. However, we do not classify ourselves as a “competitive” program! This means we don’t compete with other teams and are not enrolled in the USA swimming program. Should we get enough support, we would be happy to look into this possibility, but for now we are focused on the technical aspects. In practice, we aim to teach proper swimming technique, lap swimming etiquette, and basic competitive rules (in case they would like to swim competitively in the future). Swimming can be a great sport for kids to learn goal-setting and teamwork, as it is a sport that is both individually focused (each student sets their goals based on their own pacing) and group-oriented (swimmers work together during Relay races). Each student sets their own goals for times, and once a month we run a “mock meet” to test their improvement! Still sound fun? Well, if your student is interested in trying out Swim Team, they must know these basic skills:

  • Swim 3 lengths each of all 4 stokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Freestyle) OR swim a 200yd IM (individual Medley).
  • Know flipturns on Front (freestyle) and Back (Backstroke) – Swim at least 200yds (12 lengths) Freestyle and Backstroke.
  • Want to know more about swimming as a sport!

 
Come check out Swim Team on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-6PM! We are happy to administer tryouts, answer questions or just give information about this cool sport.

Take a look a the list of upcoming sessions:
February 5th – 28th ($65/ 60/ 55)
