Prospective Swimmers

The New Milford Barracudas is a year round swim team with approximately 100 swimmers that participates in USA Swimming/CT Swimming sanctioned meets.

There are two seasons for each component of the team – winter and summer:


USA Swimming Long Course Season typically runs from April to the beginning of August.
USA Swimming Short Course Season runs from September to the beginning of March.

The cost for USA Swimmers/season is approximately $500 - $800 depending on the swimmers' practice group. Practices are usually 1.5 hours a night. There are other fees throughout the season which include annual USA Swimming dues ($78) and meet fees (approximately $25 - $30 per meet). Meets are usually on the weekends.


Practices are normally between the hours of 6pm and 8pm. The specific time and length of practice is confirmed before the season starts for each individual level.

Please email any Coach or Board of Director with any questions. Swimmers new to our team must be evaluated for skill level before being placed.
