Mid-Atlantic Club (LIFE) would like to welcome all new and
returning swimmers and families to our summer swim team program, The Barracudas. We are
excited to start the eleventh season of The Barracudas, offering the
opportunity for our members ages 18 and under to swim in a summer
league program. Our team is comprised of members from the
Centerville and Loudoun Life Time Athletic locations.
Barracudas are a competitive
summer swim team that participates in the Old
Dominion Swim League (ODSL) . ODSL is a
developmental league with a primary focus of growing a love for
swimming in young swimmers. There are 34 swim teams and over a
thousand families that participate in the ODSL.

Volunteer Message from the
The success of each swim
meet depends on the volunteers. Swim
meets cannot happen without many volunteers. Getting involved at
the meets not only makes parents feel more a part of the team, but
it also helps pass the time. We understand that there
may be new swim families this season; therefore, we want to make
sure everyone understands the requirements of our swim team. Swim
meets cannot run without the help of
our GREAT volunteers! Volunteering at both home
and away meets is vital for a successful swim meet.
We have many jobs to
fill and the more family participation we get the smoother our
summer will be! Volunteering at
time trials and team events is a great way to meet your season
requirements and get to know other swim team families.
Parents are required
to volunteer for a minimum of 16 points.
will be sent out during the first week of practice asking parents
to sign up for volunteer positions. A complete
description of each position is included in the
Volunteering Tab. This explains all
volunteer positions and lists the points given for each position.
The points system is also explained in this document. There are
many opportunities for volunteering throughout the season.
This is done on a
first-come, first-serve basis. Early sign-ups ensures
preferred positions. At Time Trials, there will be a
chance to learn each volunteering position. This year we will
participate in Time Trials, three to four home meets, three to four
away meets, and Divisionals.
If I do not
fulfill my season volunteer requirements, I agree to pay $150 which will be
charged from my account at
the end of the season.
