Nepean Kanata Barracudas Lessons

Welcome to the
Junior Barracudas and Fitswim



The Junior Barracudas programis a pre-competitive swimming program for children aged 6 to 13 years old.  The Junior Barracudas program focuses on improving stroke technique and building swimmer endurance. We typically hold 4 sessions per year - fall, winter, spring, and summer. There are currently seven different levels that are not comparable to City programs, so your first step to joining the Junior Barracudas Program is to come in for a stroke assessment. We look forward to meeting you and your swimmer!

During the Fall, Winter, and Spring, we swim at the Nepean Sportsplex, Walter Baker Community Center, and Richcraft Recreation Center. In the summer, we swim at the Nepean Sportsplex, Crestview Community Center, and Katimavik Community Center.


Registering for the 2018 Summer session can be done in three easy steps!


  • Returning Swimmers:  Please check your End of Session Progress Reports for the levels you will register your swimmer(s) in. If you no longer have this report, please email
  • New Swimmers:  Please attend a stroke assessment so that we may place your swimmer in one of the seven levels.

Stroke Assessments  
Because we are a pre-competitive program, our levels differ from city and learn-to-swim programs.  We invite you to attend a no-cost stroke assessment so we can confirm your swimmers level of best fit.

We have rolled out a new registration system (as of December 2018).  It should be a much more user friendly system for you.  However, if anything unforeseen arises, please let us know and we will work to resolve it promptly.  We thank you for your patience in the meantime.

Below are some details to familiarize you with the new registration program, Amilia.
(Please note, if your child is enrolled in another program, besides NKB, that uses the Amilia registration program, you can use your existing account.)

It’s a new program.  While it is on our website, it is a secure, third party program.  The program will prompt you   
to create your account at the time of registration.

(If your child enrolled in another program, besides NKB, that uses the Amilia registration program, you can alternately log into that account when prompted during registration.

What if I am registering more than one swimmer?  How will I get my discount?  Your multi-swimmer discount will automatically be applied at checkout when you register more than one swimmer at the same time. 

What if I have another child on the competitive team?  Please email us at  We will provide you with a coupon for your discount.

Please click on the registration link on our Junior Barracudas page to register.  The system will then direct you through the registration process. However, if you have any concerns, please see the attached page for clarifications.


If you have any questions regarding the Junior Barracudas program, please contact us by email at or by phone at 613-723-2278
