Practice Information

Practices will be held rain or shine. In the event of lightning and/or thunder, kids will be pulled from the pool (or practice will be stopped) for 30 minutes following the last lightening strike or thunder clap.  When the storm passes practice will be resumed.  In the event of a pool malfunction or pool maintenance practice will be canceled. In those circumstances you will be contacted via email as soon as the decision is made to cancel practice. Communications will also be posted on the Barracudas social media sites.

  • Please be on time for practice. If early, please wait on pool deck until further instruction from the coaches.
  • Leave valuables at home. Neither JRSC nor Barracudas are responsible for lost or stolen items.
  • Avoid eating 30 minutes before practice.
  • Bring a towel daily and dry clothes on cooler days.
  • Wear proper swim attire to practice (Jammer or racer type swim suits for boys. No swim shirts or board shorts.)
  • Avoid wearing the team suit for practices to preserve it for meets.
  • Wear swim goggles which are required for all practices and meets.
  • Wear a swim cap (recommended for practices and highly recommended for meets.)

Equipment for swimmers to bring to practice DAILY

  • Goggles
  • Swim Cap (all girls should wear a cap to keep hair out of face, for boys its optional)
  • Practice Suit
  • Water Bottle
  • Towel (club has towels for swimmers)

It is critical for the coach’s attention to be focused on swimmer instruction and safety during practice.  Parents and siblings must remain away from the coaching area on deck during practice to minimize distractions.  Parents are welcome to watch practices away from the coaching area on the pool deck.  Please avoid distracting the swimmers or the coaches during practice. Please relay this information to any other caregivers who may bring or pick up your children. Children who are not in practice must remain with their parents. If you wish to speak with a coach, please wait until the end of the last practice or send a quick email to set up an appointment.  The only break the coaches have is the short time between practices without swimmers in the water. If needed, the Board members are available to answers questions at any time.
