Team Suits FAQ
The new-for-2021 Barracuda team suit is the Dolfin XtraSleek Supernova. The XtraSleek Team Suits are 10 times more durable than traditional Nylon Lycra fabric meaning these suits can last more than 1 season! We are sticking to our full team colors of blue and green! It will be our team suit for the 2021 and 2022 swim season.
Check out the flyer below from SwimFreak for our team suit:

Below is the team link for us to order suits and equipment from SwimFreak.
Please let them know you are with the Barton Creek West Barracudas Swim Team to get the team discount! (They may do the Barton Creek County Club sharks too, so don't get their suit!)
The suit isn't readily available to purchase online, and you cannot get it at Dick's Sporting Goods, Academy Sports or most other local generic sport shops. SwimFreak has ordered a bunch of these suits in advance so they are your best bet, especially for trying on various sizes.
We plan on posting a flyer with more details from SwimFreak shortly.
Do I have to buy a swimsuit for my swimmer?
YES. In order to swim at an official BCW Barracudas swim meet and to be a part of any relay, all swimmers must wear the current Barracuda team suit. No, we aren't making money off of it. It does help the coaches quickly identify our swimmers at meets and helps the officials ensure the right kids are in the right events. All teams in our league have similar policies.
The team suit is not required at practice but these are Lycra blend suits are durable and made for both practice and meets.
Can I use this suit next year?
YES. The Swim Board has made every effort to choose a suit that is available on a 2-year manufacturing cycle and the Dolfin XtraSleek Supernova listed as a suit that is available for both the 2021 & 2022 seasons. Our partner, SwimFreak will make it available for an additional year through 2022.
What about the other gear?
Please purchase goggles, a kickboard and fins and possibly a mesh bag. We recommend you talk to the folks at SwimFreak to ensure you get the right size for all and SwimFreak sell those there as well.
