Interested in swimming with the Barracudas?


What is the Prince George Barracuda Swim Club? 

  • We are a dynamic winning team dedicated to the development of excellence in swimming and promoting healthy activities through swimming.

  • We help children, youth, and adults develop and maintain their physical fitness and mental alertness. 

  • We teach our members to improve their stroke development and endurance as non-competitive and competitive swimmers.

  • We are a community based club that encourages pride in the team, swimmer’s personal accomplishments, and builds lifelong friendships and leadership abilities. 

Why swim with the Barracudas?

Our programs develop swimmers from basic swimming skills to the competitive level, in a friendly and supportive environment. Barracuda swimmers compete in all levels of swim meets locally, provincially, nationally, and internationally.  Some of our swimmers have developed their swimming skills to compete on the world stage of swimming, representing Team BC and Team Canada.

Our coaching staff is dedicated to the swimmer’s continuous development.  Head Coach, Jerzy Partyka leads our team and has developed a training program that is highly respected in the swimming community.  He often coaches for Swim BC and Team Canada at national and international level meets.

We offer: 

  • Age Group Pre-competitive and Competitive programs – designed to help develop and improve a swimmer’s stroke and technique by grouping them into swim groups based on ability.

  • Masters programs  - designed for adults who want low impact exercise to strengthen and condition their bodies without the harsh jarring effects of other exercise programs; improve on swimming technique; or to compete in Master’s competitions with the assistance of professional coaching.

  • Swim School programs – for young children who enjoy swimming and would like to join the Barracudas but have yet to develop the endurance needed for our entry level programs.

  • Summer Swim Camp - focused on having fun while concentrating on stroke improvement and endurance for swimmers of all abilities.
