The first year of the Barracudas as a formal swim club was 1956.
It has served the county as a summer swim team since then, with a
usual team size of more than 50 swimmers. Several families have
send three generations through the Barracudas program. The team has
always been an all-volunteer effort run on a shoestring budget.
Nonetheless, the quality of the team is very high and many
Barracudas have achieved State and Regional awards over the years.
In the past three years (with the work of some very dedicated board
members) the team finally achieved non-profit corporation 501(c)(3)
status with the Federal IRS.
