Barranews April 27 - May 3

Barracudas Aruba

Dear Barracudas Family,

It has been a while since we shared barranews with you, we keep in touch via whatsapp and zoom instead. Thank you for joining in on the family day workout sessions, it keeps us connected via a screen ;). We would like to request your cooperation in continuing to encourage and motivate the athletes. The coaches have noticed a change in their motivation, so we are reaching out for help. Hopefully we will be back at the pool soon, adjusting to the new normal. In the meantime look at old routine / figures videos and if you want share with us on Facebook or via whatsapp. This will allow the girls to get excited for getting back to pool life!


Barracuda's Synchro Club to Barracudas Artistic Swimming

There are more exciting times ahead! The time for Barracuda's Synchro Club to change its name and logo is here. Primarily based on the change in the name of the sport worldwide and the logo is about 40 years old. We are sharing a link so that all member athletes can vote online if they agree with changing the name to Barracudas Artistic Swimming. Please ask ALL athletes to vote here: https://forms.gle/YPzyJGFFy88ps6KN7

Solo Competitions

The coaching staff would like to organize a solo competition for all age groups as soon as we are back in the pool. Let the athletes begin searching for the right music, thinking about the routine and swimsuit colors. If you have any questions regarding type of music, time requirements, etc. you can contact any one of the coaches. It is recommended that the younger athletes contact one of the older girls for guidance and training. Let us know how we can help and we will do so right away.


Barracudas FAMILY Challenge

In an effort to keep our barracudas community strong the coaches came up with a new challenge. Athletes need to color coordinate their clothing with mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt or anyone flexible enough to do the yoga challenge. We are showing some examples below, but please be creative! Please send all photos to coach Yami.
