    2022 Information

    • Swimsuit - Same suits this year!  Click here to check out our team suit, the same  suit from last season will be available for the next two years! We do ask that a team suit is worn for all swim meets!  Show your spirit and make it easier to lineup all the kids in the right place. NOTE: Tech Suits are NOT allowed at any meets per leagues rules. 

      We also have our "Get Your Gear" event scheduled for Sunday, April 10th from 1-3pm at the BCW Big Pool. Stop by to meet your coaches, chat with friends, and purchase your team suit and any other gear (goggles, kickboard, fins)! SwimFreak, our official supplier, will be on site to help.
    • Minimum Skills/Meet Requirements - We require all swimmers to be able to complete 25 yard freestyle in the pool in approximately 60 seconds at the first practice. We also expect that Barracudas swimmers will compete in swim meets when possible. The league will continue the policy that each swimmer "swim an event successfully in practice before entering that event in a meet".  If you have questions, reach out to the team coaches. 
    • COVID policies- First and foremost, we ask that any swimmer who is showing any signs and symptoms of illness, including those related to COVID, does not swim in practice or meets until they have resolved according to current health guidelines. At this time, we ask parents with swimmers who have been diagnosed with COVID who were at a Barracudas practice, meet, or event during the contagious period to inform the Board of the positive case via the [email protected] We will then confidentially inform the families with swimmers of the appropriate age group(s) of the possible contact. These policies are subject to change as we move through the season. 
    • Volunteer Requirements - We will be doing volunteer signup at registration and filling holes as the season progresses. We are requiring each family to earn four (4) volunteer points through out the season in order to run safe, timely, and fun meets.  We are a volunteer-run organization and our parent volunteers are the heart and soul of the entire operation of the BCW Barracudas Swim Team. For more details on our volunteer roles, click here
    • Please be aware that your child can be pulled from participating in a swim meet and the remaining season if the family does not meet the minimum volunteer agreement. Swimmers may not be allowed to return to the team the following year if the volunteer commitment is not met. In addition, an $150 penalty will be charged to the credit card on file at registration.  If a family faces unexpected hardship or unpredictable circumstances, please reach out proactively to the Board. 
    • Seeking Volunteer leads and co-leads for various roles including Age Group Parents lead/co-lead, Concessions co-lead, Merchandise/T-shirts co-lead, Ready Bench co-lead, Ribbons co-lead, Starter/Announcer (30min training class), Timer lead/co-lead, Fun Event/Fun Friday lead/co-lead.If these are roles that you have done in the past, feel comfortable doing and would be interested in a leadership role, please email us at [email protected] so we can give you more details.   
    • Credit Card Only - To save effort we will continue the credit card only policy. If you do not have a credit card, please contact us BEFORE starting the registration process. You will not be able to complete the registration online without a credit card.
