2016-2017 Barracudas Swim Team
The YMCA of Middletown Barracudas Swim Team is a year round competitive swim team for children and teens ages 5 to 18 years old. The Barracudas are members of United States Swimming (USS), the Empire State Swim League (ESSL), and Metropolitan Swimming.
Our swimmers are placed in one of 4 practice groups: Barracudas in Training (BIT), Bronze I, Bronze II, Silver or Gold. Each level has goals for swimmers to attain.
Practices are held at the Middletown High School pool during the school year and at the outdoor pool at Maple Hill Park during the summer. Competitions take place at many different locations within the Metropolitan area.
Our team begins practices at the Middletown High School pool on Monday, September 12th and new swimmers are invited to try-out following the schedule below.
Siblings of a current or former Barracuda (regardless of school district) are welcome to try-out during any practice Monday-Friday between 7:00PM-8:00PM, beginning Monday, September 12th.
Residents of the Middletown School District may walk-in for a try-out Monday through Friday between 7:00PM-8:00PM or may contact me to set up another time if necessary.
Due to our agreement with the Middletown School District, try-outs for non-Middletown School District residents will begin in October by appointment only (with the exception of siblings of current or former Barracudas). Please call or email us to set up a try-out.
When entering the High School, please park in the main lot (DO NOT DRIVE THROUGH OR PARK IN THE LOWER BUS LOOP). After parking in the main lot, walk around the left side of the building (directly adjacent to the track) and you will find a set of double doors (with windows). Please knock on the doors and one of our team parents will open the doors for you.
