Watch for updates in the news section on the right of the page & keep an eye on the calendar!
As of Jan 11, 2024...
1) Not Changing: Coach Ryan is returning for this season!
2) Changing: Our league basically split in two with most of the country clubs going in a different direction
3) We're still going to have a season with many of the same teams as past years - Lake Hills, Lake Pointe, Rollingwood, Riverplace and (likely) the return of Lakeway for 6 total teams.
4) The end-of-season meets will be different, since Westwood left the league and they ran the all-star meet. Stay tuned.
5) Our schedule will be mostly the same, but we'll probably end a little bit sooner than last year. Don't look at the country clubs' schedule to imply anything about our season, as they are intentionally shifting their schedule earlier.
Our calendar has started with a rough outline of what we know and will build as we know more.
6) We cannot comment on the rumor that they were sick of eating our bubbles.
More info will be communicated as we get closer to registration in March.

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). For the purpose of summer league, the athletes compete the entire season at their age on May 1 of the current year. 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.
