Since 1994, the BCW neighborhood swim team has introduced swimmers ages 4 - 17 to the sport of competitive swimming. We are a member of the Austin Hills Swim League.
Children of appropriate age by May 1st who wish to be on the swim team should be able to swim the length of our pool by the end of the 1st week of practice to continue. Those very close to swimming that distance or with much determination may be considered; the head coach has the final decision on whether the child will make the team. Swim Team is not the same as swim lessons.
Our season begins in the spring and ends in summer. Each year daily practices (Mon-Fri) begin in late April. In mid-May our weekend swim meets are held in addition to daily practices; we have one meet per weekend until the season is over at the end of June.
All BCW Barracuda events are run by volunteers exclusively--each swim family is required to have one parent volunteer serving at every swim meet. Board members and the team president are also volunteer positions.
Swim team is a great way to meet your neighbors and spend time having fun and working together! Join us! Registration begins in March of each year.
