BARRACUDA STRONG!

EVEN WHEN WE ARE APART
WE ARE STILL A TEAM

BARRACUDA STRONG !

While the opportunity to come together and swim has been temporarily taken away from us, that is no reason not to be prepared for our return to the pool.  The coaching staff has put together some materials to help you stay healthy, to learn,  and to stay/get in shape during this time.  As always, let us know if we can be of service.

A VIDEO MESSAGE FROM COACH CHRIS

  NEWS for you to USE

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO BE SAFE - From the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

SOME ADVICE, ENCOURAGEMENT, CHALLENGES (and an advertisement) from Olivier Leroy Olivier Leroy is a swimmer/coach/mental training coach who has some sound advice in this time of disruption and uncertainty. I thought it was very good.  Of course, at the end, he makes a pitch to buy his book, which you may or may not want to do.  However, since I was using his words to help inspire you, I felt it only fair that I give him a platform to earn some money.
