Barracuda Acquatics Club

The Barracuda Aquatics Club offers the CUDA Swim School in the spring and summer, split into two sessions each season, open to any level of swimmers ages 5 and up.

The school prepares your young swimmer to join Barracuda Aquatics Club or if you are not sure about the swim team immediately the school will give your swimmer good basic swim technique to help improve their stroke and confidence in the water. The lessons are semi-private in nature with a maximum of four swimmers per instructor. The swimmers are grouped together based on skill level which is determined on the first day of the session.
