Johnson Ranch Barracudas

Welcome to the Johnson Ranch Little 'Cudas!

Introducing the Johnson Ranch Little 'Cudas!  Coach Andy and several of our amazing Barracudas coaches have designed a swim team readiness program geared toward younger swimmers.  This is an excellent opportunity to give any child a strong foundation for water safety and swim fundamentals, and also prepares interested children with a seamless transition into the Barracuda's 6 and Under swim group.

Prerequisites:

Little 'Cudas should be comfortable in the water, without a parent being with them.

Practice Schedule:

There will be two sessions held over the spring and summer, and young swimmers are welcome to enroll in either or both sessions.  Little 'Cudas will meet at the South Pool on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 2:30-3:00.

  • Diving 

The Little ‘Cudas will be overseen by Coach Anthony with in-water support by our Junior Barracuda Coaches.  There will be a 2:1 Swimmers to Junior Coaches ratio.   

Practice Information

Practices will be held rain or shine. 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 with your swimmers 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.

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, Board members are available to answers questions at any time.
