Monday Fun Days

Once morning practice begins, Coach may choose to designate some Monday practices for Monday Fun Days which will include games, relays, and other fun water related activities.  Normal practice times will still be in effect during Monday Fun Days.

Extra Practices-Begins June 19

Once school gets out, the Barracudas will hold extra practices at the Oakwood Pool from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday – Thursday.  These extra practices are for swimmers who need to miss morning practice and must be pre-arranged with the Head Coach prior to attending evening practice, to ensure appropriate coaching staff and lane space for swimmers.

Practice Cancellations

If weather is questionable and you're wondering if practice has been canceled, our Facebook and Instagram pages and this website will be updated with any cancellations and an email will be sent out if practice is canceled in advance of the starting time.

Many times, practice will start, then have to be canceled for a number of reasons including thunder and lightning, water contamination, or an insufficient number of lifeguards. Make sure your swimmers know what to do in case of a cancellation during practice. Those swimmers who come to practice alone should have a plan for getting home. A Coach or Board Member will stay with a swimmer who is unable to get a ride; however, it is the responsibility of the swimmer to notify an adult of his/her situation.
