Johnson Ranch Barracudas

 

Welcome to the Johnson Ranch Barracudas!!!

Welcome to the Barracudas Swim Team!  We are very pleased to announce that the Barracudas WILL be able to offer a swim program this year, but it will require some modifications to the format we are all used to.  To comply with Covid-19 precautions we will need to cap our total number of swimmers in each age group and some practice times will be slightly shorter than in past seasons.  We currently anticipate holding time trials and three meets with the other teams in the Comstock Swim Conference.  Meets may be held virtually and the Comstock Championship may not occur this season.  Information on these events will be communicated to parents as soon as it becomes available.  Even with these limitations; however, the Barracudas coaching staff, the Parent Board, and the Johnson Ranch Sports Club are doing their best to ensure that each of our swimmers will have an engaging and meaningful season in the water. Thank you to everyone for your patience over the last year as we have struggled to chart a path towards a 2021 swim season.

 

2021 Important Dates:

All important dates are listed on the team's home page, with seperate tabs for Swim Meet and Team Functions. These are also shown under the Calendar tab. Any updates to the events and functions will be udpated on the website, so please refer to the web site for up to date information. Some dates we would like to highlight here:

March 8-12: Registration will be open to returning swimmers & siblings

March 15: Registration will be open to all swimmers. New swimmers must participate in a swim assessment with the coaching staff.

March 21: New Swimmer Assessments:  New Swimmer Assessments will be held on Sunday, March 21.  Assessments are an opportunity for our coaches to see your child in action, determine their water safety & team readiness and place them in an appropriate swim group.   This is critical in making sure your swimmer receives the instruction that will maximize their team experience.  Thank you and welcome to the team!
