Team Philosophy

 Berkeley Barracudas Swim Club Philosophy


The Barracuda’s swim team uses the sport of swimming and its environment to teach life’s lessons. We use swimming as a way to teach goal setting, dedication, commitment, and a strong work ethic. The Berkeley Barracuda swim club takes a long term philosophy to swimming. We emphasize kicking and technique at the younger ages, and progress to IM training as the athletes grow in the program. This philosophy allows athletes to become their best in their teenage and college years. The Barracudas provides the opportunity for all athletes in the sport of swimming to swim for the love of the sport and to reach their highest potential.
