OUR TEAM VISION

Building Better People Through the Sport of Swimming

OUR TEAM MISSION

The Johnson Ranch Barracudas is a recreation-based competitive swim program committed to instilling a LOVE of swimming in every participant. We believe that by providing the fundamentals of stroke technique, sportsmanship, teamwork, and goal setting, our program teaches essential life skills to our swimmers. We focus on accountability at every level of our organization, from our Board, to our Coaching Staff, to our Parents, and to our Swimmer. A summer with the JRSC Barracudas will leave your family with great memories.

 

SWIM TEAM VALUES

  • Respect: Respect for the sport of swimming, your coaches, your parents, and your team. By respecting others, you are respecting yourself.

  • Sportsmanship: Foster a spirit of healthy competition. Swimmers demonstrate positive action toward others during practice, meets, wins, & losses. Swimmers learn to challenge themselves and through these efforts, inspire their teammates.

  • Physical Fitness: Swimming is a lifestyle that can extend far beyond the pool deck. In the sport of Swimming you learn that consistent repetition of the right physical and mental exercises lends to a lifetime of physical well-being.

  • Individual Success: Success can be defined by each individual swimmer through thoughtful goal setting. Success can be achieved through focused effort, consistent work ethic, and a great attitude.

  • Teamwork: Through individual growth, a single swimmer plays a bigger role in the growth and achievement of their team. The race is in each swimmer’s lane, but each race is integral to the overall success of the Johnson Ranch Barracudas.

  • Safety: The Barracuda pool deck is a safe place to be yourself while being a part of a team. Our job as a program is to provide our swimmers with a fun and positive environment, within which, they can learn the sport.
