2024 Barracudas Swim Team

We are so excited about the 2024 swim team season! Our summer swim team is an opportunity for kids to build their swim skills in a fun, outdoor atmosphere with some friendly competition. Our swim team includes a range of ages (currently 5-18) and swim abilities. We welcome all with interest to attend the evaluations. We will be having regular morning and evening practices, four dual meets, a relay carnival for our 10 & under swimmers, a Blue vs. Yellow Intrasquad meet, and Championships to finish off our season!


Important Details

Friday MAY 31, 2024
4:30 pm for ages 8 and under and 5:15 pm for ages 9 and older.

Saturday JUNE 1, 2024
9:00 am all ages

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.

Team Suit Fitting and Parent Meeting will take place on Sunday, June 9th 2024. Metro Swim Shop will be on site for suit fitting from 4-6pm and the parent meeting will take place immediately after, at 6pm in the Grove.

All weather related notifications will be made via Facebook and our website. Please follow Willow Grove Swim Club on Facebook to receive notifications.
