The Bozeman Barracuda Swim Team was founded in the 1960’s by
dedicated parents interested in competitive swimming. The
Barracudas have a successful program of 80 - 100 swimmers, ranging
from 5 to 22 years old. Professional coaches guide beginning
swimmers new to competitive swimming through our graduated levels
of instruction and training. Barracuda Swimmers compete at meets
across the state, at regional competitions throughout the
Northwest, and at national level competitions. Current

Bozeman Barracuda Organization
The Barracuda Swim Team is fortunate to be supported by one of the
finest organizations in all of competitive swimming, USA Swimming.
Each time a youngster joins the team, the swimmer’s parents
automatically become members (and owners) of the Bozeman Barracuda
Swim Club and inherit with that membership the responsibility to
participate and support the activities of the team.
As owners of the 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization,
parents elect a Board of Directors to oversee the programs
and performance of the business. Professional coaches are hired
with the responsibility of running the swim team. They are assisted
in this task by a variety of parent volunteers.
The Board of Directors is composed of seven members who are elected
yearly at the Fall Banquet on a rotating basis for a two-year term.
They are charged with the ultimate responsibility for directing the
financial affairs and supervising the management of the team.
Traditionally, the Barracuda Board of Directors has led by example,
by being among the most active and experienced members. The
Barracuda Board of Directors consists of the following elected
officials: President, Vice-President, Secretary, and
Treasurer, two elected at large members, and a swimmer
