Welcome New YSF Barracudas Parent and Swimmer

On behalf of the YMCA of South Florida and the YSF Barracudas Parent Advisory Committee we would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your swimmer as a member of the YSF Barracudas Swim team. By joining the YSF Barracudas you become a part of YMCA of South Florida, the 26th largest YMCA in the country.  You also joining the YSF Barracudas swim program with four locations in South Florida at Weston, Greater Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, and ahora en Homestead. 

A very important part of your swimmers success is an active and enthusiastic parent. All successful swim programs have an active parent’s organization. We are pleased to have the YSF Barracudas Parent Advisory Committee as our parent organization and Booster Club.  A well run Booster Club can minimize the costs and keep fees reasonable. By volunteering, parents will be responsible to perform small tasks, many of these tasks are fun and all will provide you an opportunity to meet and make new friends while assisting the team. By volunteering just a few hours each month, you will be actively supporting and investing in your child’s development. 

The key to our success and your swimmer’s development is your involvement and using the YSF Barracudas website to stay informed of the upcoming events including swim meets. All the information you need is located at our website. This site includes the Parent’s Handbook; practice schedules; monthly calendar; meet entries; and much more.

We hope this information has been beneficial to your start of a new swimming experience. All of us in the YSF Barracudas family feel strongly that competitive swimming at the YMCA is one of the best sports available to our children.  We wish you the best and look forward to meeting you very soon on the pool deck!
