Barracudas Swim Team 2022!

2022 Barracudas Swim Team

We are so excited about the summer swim team season 2022! Our summer swim team program is an opportunity for kids to build their swim skills in a fun outdoor atmosphere with some friendly competition. The swim team is for swimmers who are 18 and younger, who are not in college yet, and who can pass the Basic Swimmer’s Test. We will be having regular season practices, four dual meets, and a relay carnival for our 10 & under swimmers.  Championships will also be returning this year!

Important Details

Friday JUNE 3, 2022
4:30 pm for ages 8 and under and 5:15 pm for ages 9 and older.

Saturday JUNE 4, 2022
9:00 am for ages 8 and under and 9:30 am for ages 9 and older

These evaluations are for anyone who has NOT been on the swim team before. The coaches and I will be there to assess the swimmer’s readiness for swim team.  We do not focus on any timing requirements or stroke ability, but we do assess the swimmer’s ability to swim independently and have a basic front stroke.
