Barracudas Registration - Summer 2021
Open for Returning Members
5/1/21 - 6/1/21
Open for New Members
5/15/21 - 6/1/21
Welcome to the Braddock Heights Barracudas swim team online registration process. We are pleased to offer electronic registration, accepting checks (via mail) or credit cards (online). The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you to easily declare status for swim meets, see your children's swim time histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.
The Barracudas swim team offers swimmers the opportunity to develop their swimming skills and swim competitively in an encouraging and fun environment. The only requirement is the ability to swim independently one length of the pool. Due to COVID restrictions, we will not participate in any in person meets with any other swim team in the Frederick Summer Swim League (FSSL). We may have an opportunity to swim in a "virtual meet" or an intrasquad meet at Middletown High School. Further details will be available soon.
Due to the fact that the Barracudas will be just a "practice team" for summer 2021, we will not require jobs for our families. The "opt out" fee will also no longer be available. The team however may need volunteers for any "virtual meets" or intrasquad meets that we may have. The team will ask for volunteers once we know the details and will appreciate your help.
NEW FOR 2021 - Because the team will impose size restrictions based on age group to mitigate COVID exposure, registration will be capped to 30 swimmers for each age group of 8 and under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15-18. Registration will be open to RETURNING FAMILIES ONLY from 5/1/21-5/31/21. Any returning family can register a new swimmer during this time. NEW FAMILIES will be able to register from 5/15/21-5/31/21.
If the cap is reached for a certain age group, a waiting list will be established. If other age groups are not maxxed out, we will pull from the wait lists. Those swimmers pulled from the wait list will be pulled on a first in, first out basis.Since this process will be fluid, a final practice schedule will not be finally determined until after registration closes completely on 5/31. Practice will not begin until Monday, June 21 at Braddock Heights pool. We appreciate your patience and understanding of this "new normal".
There is also a $50 Braddock Heights Community Association fee, per family, if you have not already paid this fee to the BHCA for the 2021 season.
Please completely read each form in this registration section.
We look forward to having you on the Braddock Heights Barracudas and are excited for another great but slightly different season!
