Swim Team
The 2019 Bayside Barracudas

If you can swim 25 yards and want to learn to do more—you're welcome to join us!

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 Team.

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 2019 Summer Season starts and ends with a Pool Party

Tuesday, June 25th, 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 events
and four Thursday evening swim meets.

Details:         First practice is Wednesday morning, June 26
(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.

See the complete schedule for detailed information.
