Team History

Team History

Velocity Swimming has been a part of the Wenatchee Valley for over 30 years. Velocity Swimming originated in 1976 as a summer only program called the Eastmont Swim Team.  When the pool was covered in the late seventies the Eastmont swim team became a year round USA program called the Barracudas.  Coaches Jack and Jeanne Davisson led the Cuda's to multiple championships through the 80's, 90's and into the 21st century.  In 2005 the Davisson's handed the reins to new coach Bob Hill. In the fall of 2010, the Barracudas merged with swim team parents and coaches from the WRAC to become the present Velocity Swimming.  Shortly after, in the fall of 2011, current Head Coach John Pringle was hired.  Since then, Velocity has regained some of the past CUDA glory and has won 4 out of the last five Inland Empire Swimming Championship meets and the past 3 Long Course Championships in a row.  

Velocity is the only year-around competitive swim team in the greater Wenatchee Valley.  We offer high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.

All of our coaches have access to the most comprehensive training and certification programs for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.

Velocity Swimming, a non profit club, is run by its elected Board of Directors which meets the second Monday of each month at 7:00 pm. All members are welcome at each meeting and encouraged to be involved in team activities and fundraisers.

We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. Thank you for joining us. We are looking forward to meeting you. Please feel free to ask another member or coach any question you may have.

Velocity Swimming accepts new swimmer registrations all year long.  Call or e-mail coach John for more information, or contact us through the contact tab above.  1 month trials on the team are available for $50 after an appropriate tryout.
