2017 Swim Team Info and Registration

Registration meeting will be Saturday April 22, 2017 from    9am- 12pm at the Aquatic Center, 215 Kingsport Drive.

 

Checks should be made out to Sunset Ridge Racquet & Swim Club for $95 per swimmer.

No new registrations will be accepted after June 2, 2017 unless a swimmer is new to the neighborhood.

**All Swimmers Must Be A Member in Good Standing

Of Sunset Ridge Racquet & Swim Club

Before Joining The Team **

After May 17, 2017 there is a $10.00 Late Registration Fee.

 

Whether you have veteran swimmers or will be new to the swim team, there are two items that will be strictly enforced this summer season:

 

  • Swimmers must be at least 5 years old and able to swim 15 yards, unassisted, and with a recognizable stroke.  If the coaches feel your swimmer is not safe in the water at the first practice, you will be asked to please wait until next season and instead enroll in swim lessons.  One option for lessons before this summer are various pre-season clinics offered in the area.
  • The Barracuda team is Parent-Run. Therefore, every family must fulfill a minimum of 3 volunteer “points.” These will be explained at the parent's meeting.  Do not register your child if you do not plan to assist in the group effort. Thanks!

  ~ JUNIOR BARRACUDAS ~


The Sunset Ridge Swim Team is excited to offer this program for 2017 for young up and coming Barracudas! Junior Barracudas are members of the Sunset Ridge Swim Team, but do not participate in the Blue‐Gold meet, the regular Tuesday night dual meets, or the team championship meet. Junior Barracudas will have an intra squad meet at the end of the season.

The goal of the Junior Barracuda program is to provide an introduction to the swim team environment to younger children. We work on basic water safety skills, as well as basic swim technique.

Our goal is that by the end of the summer, swimmers are able to jump (or dive) into the pool on their own and and swim 15 yards of freestyle with their face in the water, and be able to swim 15 yards of backstroke.

However, wherever a child’s abilities may be, a coach will be with them every step of the way!

The minimum standard to participate in the Junior Barracudas are that a child MUST be at least 3 years of age, they MUST be potty trained, and they must be willing to jump into the water with a coach in the deep end of the pool.

If a Junior Barracuda gains the ability to swim 15 yards of the pool unassisted during the season, they may be moved up to the 6 & Under group at the discretion of the Head Coach.

Since Junior Barracudas do not participate in regular dual meets, Junior Barracudas parents do not have to volunteer at regular dual meets, unless you have a child in an older age group. Junior Barracuda parents are expected to volunteer at the Junior Barracuda intra squad meet at the end of the season. Junior Barracudas are considered part of the team and will receive a T-shirt and a medal at the end of the year. Registration costs for Junior Barracudas are $95. The group will have a maximum of 32 participants and will have a coach‐swimmer ratio of no more than 1 to 3 to maximize assistance for participants. Practices will be evening only, from 4:40-5pm. There is no practice on Tuesdays after dual meets begin.

Where should I place my child?

*‐ Unassisted means “on their own”. No stopping, holding onto lane ropes or the side of the pool. 15 yards is 3/5
of a length of the pool (pool is 25 yards long). Still not sure where to put your child? Just ask a coach!!
