How long will the swim season last??
All swimmers will swim until Regional "A" on 7-19-2014.
For those who swim at Regional "A" and do not qualify for State, your season is over.
All swimmers going to Regional "B" will continue to practice until 7-26-2014.
After competing at Regional "B", your season is over.
The last week after Regional "B" until State is only for those competing at State.
We need to give them the additional individual coaching.
That being said,
We are working on setting up a Banquet for the end of the season that will be after State. We do not hava a date and time set in stone yet. Please keep checking the website.
PARENTS AND SWIMMERS!!!!!
TAAF Registration fees are due by this weekend, Saturday's meet. $6 per swimmer. These are due regardless if you swim at Regionals or State. There will also be a fee per event for Regionals if you choose to swim. Your swimmer will not be allowed to swim if they have not paid their Regionals event fees or State event fees prior to the Meet. This applies to A Regionals, B Regionals and State.
Please see the bottom of this page. Additional expenses have been posted on the website since the beginning of the Season.
Individual Pictures didn't turn out very well.. We need to retake the individual pictures on Tuesday July 15th. Please bring your competition suit for the retakes. If you missed out the first time AND WOULD LIKE TO GET INDIVIDUAL PICTURES, NOW WOULD BE A GOOD TIME.

The winning "Saying" is:
I SWIM THEREFORE IM
I have the Barracudas Team Swim caps!!! I will have them at the meet on Saturday. They are $5 each and are REQUIRED to be worn during the meet.
The coaches need to be able to tell which swimmers are ours.
Please bring exact money or check as I will not be able to make change.
I will have a list so you can get the cap and pay later if needed.
I am making arrangements for a new style and design for the Team T-shirts this year. I hope to have a better variety. More to come.
Team Pictures are scheduled for :
Tuesday June 24th from 9am - 11am. There will be an order form that you can make your selections on. Payment will be to Dana Farmer Photography.
We all need to wear our Team Suits for the pictures!!
