The Barracuda Coaches hold New Swimmer Assessments before the start of the season to ensure that children have the appropriate water safety, listening skills, & basic swim acumen. 

Assessments are for all new swimmers.  Swimmers can also be assessed at Spring Clinics.

Assessment Overview:

  • Your child(ren) can come anytime during their designated time frame.  If you have two different age swimmers that both need an assessment, please feel free to come during whichever the time slot works for you. 
  • Board Members will be ready to check-in your swimmer at the South Side Pool Deck. 
  • If you haven’t already, please bring a copy of your swimmer’s birth certificate for the registrar to keep.  This is for age verification. 

Please have your swimmer ready to go when you check-in:

  • Swimsuit
  • Goggles
  • Cap on (or hair tightly pulled back)

What to Expect:

Coaches are looking for water safety, listening skills, and a basic level of swim acumen.  Swimmers will also be placed in a Practice Level for the start of the season.  Please look at our TeamUnify site under the Practices and Clinics tab to access the descriptions of each level.  The assessment process should take about 15 minutes.

If you can’t make either assessment date please email Shariff Osman, Registrar at [email protected].  We will try to set up an alternative date/time for your swimmer.
