The BSR 'Orange' Barracudas - Registration NOW CLOSED

As we move into full phase two of opening and hopefully into phase 3, we are excited to announce that we will have a shortened swim schedule this season with 4 Virtual Dual Meets and a Virtual Divisional Championship meet.

We will begin our swim team practices on Tuesday June 30th. We are holding split practices for our 12 and under swimmers and our 13 and over swimmers to aid in social distancing. In order to teach our swimmers the procedures we are planning to have our 13 and Over swimmers practice on June 30th at 9:30am and then our 12 and Under swimmers to practice on Wednesday July 1st at 8:30am.

If our protocols go smoothly, we will then start practicing with both groups attending each day. Our 12 and Under swimmers will practice from 8:30am to 9:15am. Our 13 and Over swimmers will practice from 9:30am to 10:30am. (15 minutes between the groups to allow the earlier group to exit the area)

As of June 25th, the PrinceMont Swim League is proposing a shortened 4 virtual meet season:

  • SHORTENED SEASON - The 1st of 3 dual meets would then be held on either July 11th followed by 2 more virtual dual meets. The Divisional Meet would be held on August 1st. There will not be an All Star Meet this year.

What is a Virtual Swim Meet?

The PMSL has decided that to decrease the potential for transmission of COVID-19 that each swim team will hold its own swim meet in its own pool, with its own swimmers. The results from each event will be submitted through the team data managers and the meet will be scored. In this way, each team will swim against an opponent, without having to travel to another pool. Some quick guidelines for a Virtual Swim Meet include:

  • There will be ONE timer in each lane. 
  • There will be ONE Stroke and Turn judge at each end of the pool
  • There will be ONE Starter/Referee
  • All swimmers, coaches and spectators must maintain social distancing guidelines during the meet.

Who Are the Orange Barracudas?

The BSR "Orange Barracudas" Swim Team is a great group of swimmers who competes in the PrinceMont Swim League (PG and Montgomery County pools).

Each Division in the PrinceMont league typcally has 6 teams who swim against each other in 5 dual meets. On the 3rd Saturday in July the top swimmers from each team in each Division meet in a "Divisional Championship Meet" with all 6 teams represented. Finally, on the last Saturday in July, the All Star Meet will place the best swimmers from each Division against each other in one final meet.

 

Meet Our Coach

We are excited to have Coach Stacy Millspaugh back again this year. Last year under Coach Stacy we battled hard but struggled against some very strong teams in our division. We are excited to see what the 2020 Season will bring and we are looking forward to many of our swimmers post fastest times and continuing the improvements they made last season.

 

 

 

Swim Team Swimsuits

We will continue to use the black swimsuit with orange triangle stripes for the 2019 season. This is the TYR Women's Alliance T-Splice Maxfit Black/Orange swim suit. 

You can search for it online from:

If you have a team suit to trade or sell, please contact Tim Smith or our coaches and we can try to connect swimmers who need suits with those who are selling them.

Boys can wear either trunks or jammers and again these should be black with an orange stripe to match the team colors. Any of the websites listed above should also provide links to boys swimwear.
