6/22/24  Mock Meet/TimeTrials @ BSC 

This will be a practice meet to get our new swimmers and families familiar with the format of our meets and an introduction to the volunteer positions. We will have veteran parents working alongside new parents in all positions (timers, marshalls, scoring, etc.) to get them familiar with how the meet runs. It is also an excellent opportunity for our coaches to capture times for our swimmers. Our hope is that this will help all our swimmers and families get through first meet nerves and be much more comfortable knowing what to expect at our swim meets!  

7/6/24  Swim-A-Long 

This is a super fun and endurance building fundraising event for our team! Our swimmers challenge themselves to see how many laps they can swim within 3 hours. They collect pledges per lap or flat rate donations from friends and family to help cover expenses like awards, equipment and gifts for our team. We provide lap counters, music and snacks, and the kids always amaze us with how many laps they can do! Parents and siblings are welcome to participate as well.  

7/27/24 Awards BBQ @ BSC

Our end of Season Awards picnic is a wonderful way to celebrate our season and the accomplishments of our swimmers! We hope that you all can attend.  

Important Info

We are excited to announce that we have new team suits this year! We have a Berkeley Barracudas team store set up with Swim Outlet.

We ask that all team members bring short fins and goggles to all practices. You are not required to purchase them through the team store but we have included some reasonable options there for your convenience.

Afternoon Practices

We offer afternoon practices to our swimmers who are participating in day camps for other sports & interests or are attending school.
