Our Mission

Nepean Kanata Barracudas - Ottawa’s #1 Swim Club!

In 1973 the Nepean Swim Club began teaching kids the sport and spirit of swimming.  In 1990 the Nepean Swim Club and the Bayshore Barracudas amalgamated to form the Nepean Kanata Barracudas Swim Club, (NKB) - a bigger and more diverse swim club committed to the same core values.  Forty years later we continue to foster excellence in our swimmers both inside and outside the pool!

NKB has grown such that it has the ability to offer swimming programs to all ages and levels.  The Junior Barracudas pre-competitive program provides swimmers aged 6 to 13 with the fundamental skills required to become a competitive swimmer. FitSwim is the 14 years and over counterpart to the Junior Barracudas that helps teenaged swimmers transition into competitive swimming.

NKB’s competitive program offers our swimmers the opportunity to train in a supportive and challenging environment.  Our swimmers are athletes who are committed to being the best they can be.  Our youngest swimmers are 10 and under, and our eldest are returning collegiate athletes and they compete at all levels – regionally, provincially, nationally and internationally!

NKB strives to foster an environment where swimmers can grow and develop into well rounded individuals.  Our swimmers take the skills they learn as competitive swimmers on into their future successes outsides the pool!

The Junior Barracudas run in sessions year round, and our competitive program starts a new season in September.  Contact us now to learn how you can become a Barracuda!
