About the Club


Welcome to the Ernestown Barracuda Swim Club. It is hoped that your association with the Barracudas will be a rewarding experience for you.

Through hard work and dedication, you will become a swimmer with superior skills and conditioning. You will make new friends while pursuing common goals.

Parents will also make new friends while contributing to their child's development by providing encouragement and your full support.

All swimmers, parents and families are invited to become involved in the tradition of Ernestown Barracuda Swimming.


The Ernestown Barracuda Swim Club was formed in 1979 by a small group of dedicated parents, coaches and recreation staff who felt there was a need for a competitive swim club in the area.

EBSC has grown from an initial membership of 25 swimmers to approximately 60 competitive and 40 junior Barracudas.

Over the years the club has demonstrated many outstanding performances:

1983-84  Ontario AAAA Team Championships
1986-87  Ontario AAA Team Championships
1988-89  Ontario AA Team Championships

EBSC is the only club in Ontario to rise from AAAA status to A status.

Swimmers practice from three hours per week for new swimmers to 12+ hours per week for national level competitors. Practices are designed for the age and skill level of each swimmer.

All swimmers compete, when ready, at the level for which they have qualified.

Throughout the season, parents are invited to talk to the coaches about their child's progress as a competitive swimmer.
