Designed to introduce youth to competitive swim and the Barracuda Swim Team experience, this FREE PROGRAM will go through all 4 strokes of swimming and will be a great way to meet some our Barracuda Swimmers and Coaches!
September 11th – 15th, 2023
Monday – Friday, 4:00 – 5:30pm
Our Barracuda Swim School will be led by our Swim Team Coaches with the assistance of current Barracuda Swimmers. Daily attendance is encouraged to maximize the benefits of this program.
|FOCUS OF THE DAY|
|MONDAY||Introduction of Freestyle and Dives.|
|TUESDAY||Introduction of Backstroke, and review all previously learned skills.|
|WEDNESDAY||Introduction of Breaststroke, and review all previously learned skills.|
|THURSDAY||Introduction of Butterfly, and review all previously learned skills.|
|FRIDAY||Mock Meet starting with a warm-up and having all of the kids participate in some races. After the Mock Meet, there will be a chance for free swim so all swimmers can practice dives, jump off the diving board, and play games.|
The last 15 – 20 minutes of each day will be used to play a game or have free swim to allow new swimmers to build relationships with Barracuda Swimmers.
All swimmers must be able to pass the Water Competency Test (a.k.a. Swim Test):
- Swim 25 yards of the pool without touching the wall
- Tread water for 1 minute
- Demonstrate a back float
- Jump into pool
If your swimmer hasn’t completed a Swim Test, we’ll offer this test any time during regular family swim or lap swim.
