The 2018 Bayside Barracudas
If you can swim 25 yards and want to learn to do more—you're welcome to
We are a teaching swim team. We'll teach you everything you need to know.
We'll teach you how to swim faster, how to swim all the strokes, how to dive
off the starting blocks, and how to do flip turns. We'll teach you what you
need to do at a swim meet and how to get your best time on your swim. And if
you're already an experienced swim teamer—we'll challenge you, refine your
strokes, and make sure you work hard and have fun at the same time. All
experience levels are welcome.
Come join the fun and learn how great it is to be on the Bayside Swim
Parents—don't worry—we'll teach you too! We'll need your help at our swim
meets. We'll make sure to have enough volunteers so that you'll never miss
cheering for your swimmer.
Our 2018 Summer Season starts and ends with a Pool Party
Tuesday, June 19th, 8:00-10:00pm: Whole families can bring their
swim suits and jump right in. We'll meet the coaches, share more detailed
team information, order optional team suits, goggles, sweats, and t-shirts,
and go for a swim! This will be a potluck. Families are encouraged to bring
appetizers and deserts to share.
Big Picture: Monday–Thursdays for 7 weeks. Two Saturday
and four Thursday evening swim meets.
practice is Wednesday morning, June 20
(after our late night Parent Meeting/Swim Social).
We split our team into two separate practice sessions:
Elementary School ages
practice for 45 minutes
starting at 7:15am on Mondays and Wednesdays, and
starting at 8:15am on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Middle/High School ages
practice for 60 minutes
starting at 8:00am on Mondays and Wednesdays, and
starting at 7:15am on Tuesdays and Thursdays
This year, due to the number of swimmers, our most advanced elementary
swimmers will practice with our middle school/high school group. We will be
holding informal try-outs the first day of practice and will let you know
which group your swimmer will practice with.
