The Pool Temperature is 74 degrees as of 2pm on Thursday 5/13.
(We're back in the ballpark of first-week temperatures.)
Watch here for weather updates! Updates are rarely posted before 3pm unless severe weather warnings are in effect. We practice in rain, but not lightning.
(During Week 1, temperature was between 72-74. It was more like 76-80 during week 2. Pool temperature can go up by 5 degrees during a sunny day and lose that much on a cold breezy night.)
Please note the water temp. Some folks are deciding to wait a few days for the water to warm up. You know your child best! Weather updates will be posted here; cancellations will be also sent by email when applicable.
This is a volunteer run organization. We will need lots of folks to step into lead roles to make the season happen.

Welcome to the Home page of the BCW Barracudas Swim Team. Visit this page often for all the latest news and information on the Barracudas season.
The Barton Creek West Barracuda Swim Team is an ALL VOLUNTEER RUN non-profit swim team based at the Barton Creek West swimming pool. We are part of the Austin Hills Swim League. The team has roughly 180 swimmers, ages 5-17 (we do have some 4yo siblings). The vast majority of the swimmers are students of Barton Creek Elementary and Westridge Middle School.
The swim program is designed to focus on the development of young swimmers - - enhancing both competitive skills and proper stroke technique. Therefore, it is a requirement that swimmers are able to swim unassisted across the pool.
The Computers page posts updates and information on topics related to technology, our timing system, electronic scoreboard, and Meet Manager software. If you're curious about which Barracudas--past and present--are the fastest in the pool, check out our Team Records page. The Helpful Info page is where to go to educate yourself on meet operations.
