Hi Barracudas!

Another great week of practice is in the books!

I’d like to recognize the Swimmers of the Week:

  • 6/u  Elle Smith
  • 7/8  James Wilkerson
  • 9/10  Madeline Volkman
  • 11/12  Arjun Kumar
  • 13+  Peter Ho

Congratulations Swimmers of the Week!

The Little ‘Cudas program registration is now open. If interested, please register ASAP. I will open registration to those currently not JRSC members this Wednesday, April 28th at noon. If you know of anyone outside the JRSC community that might be interested, please forward them the registration link:

I have also attached the Little ‘Cudas Flyer to this email for distribution. We have a good number of junior and volunteer coaches for this program, but we could use more. If you are interested in helping young kids, become proficient enough to join the Barracudas and at the same time learn teaching swim lesson skills, send me an email at [email protected].

I’d like to introduce one of our new coaches for this year: Rusty Craver. Here is his bio he wrote for our team:

“Hello Barracuda swimmers and family! My name is Coach Rusty and I am a new coach to the team. I am looking forward to getting to know you all and am excited for a successful season this summer! I first joined swim team when I was 12 years old and I have been on the pool deck constantly ever since then. I have worked in aquatics since I was 16, where I taught swim lessons for 8 years and coached for 6 years. I have coached teams at several different organizations including teams at the high school, recreational, and club level. Aquatics is my passion, and I am thrilled I can spread that passion to the swimmers I teach and coach. I’m sure everyone is as excited as I am that we can be back in the water, so let’s make the 2021 season full of fun, hard work, and great memories!”

We are very fortunate to have coach Rusty joining us this year on the Barracudas! Like other coachescoach Rusty is available for one on one swim lessons.

Let’s have another fantastic week of practice and as always, do your personal best, everyday! GO BARRACUDAS!!

See you on deck,

Coach Andy
