Barracuda Mission:

At British Swim School, our mission is to ensure that every person, regardless of age or ability has the opportunity to become a safe and happy swimmer. We also believe every swimmer should have the opportunity to strengthen their stroke skills and learn to become part of a team before joining a more intense swim team program. Our pre-swim team is a noncompetitive swim team within our swim school; it is called The Barracuda Program.

Many times, when students go from swim lessons to competitive swimming, there is a huge learning curve and it could discourage our students from continuing swimming. The Barracuda program helps students bridge the gap between swim lessons and competitive swim programs. When they eventually join a more intense competitive swim team, it won’t seem as daunting, they’ll know what to expect, they’ll know how to be an excellent teammate, and they will thrive!

  • Must graduate Shark 2 or can complete the following

Common Questions:

Q: What will practice look like?
