Bowman Woods Swim and Racquet Club

  

The 2021 swim team season is a go!! 

The Bowman Woods Barracuda swim team has an excellent reputation for providing both a fun, and competitive experience for summer and year round swimmers alike.  Swim team is open to both members and non members of the BWSRC. Swim Team member fee for 2021 is $90 per swimmer plus online processing fee. This includes all coaching, entry fees, etc.  Registration for Bowman Woods Barracuda swim team is available May 1, 2021 for members to sign up and the public can signup May 8, 2021.  

If your child is new to the swim team and falls in the 11 and under category, they are being asked to meet with the coaching staff prior to the season to demonstrate proficiency. This will simply amount to swimming two laps in the pool, one with freestyle, and one with another stroke, during which they do not stop, or hold onto the lane lines. If it is clear to coaches that it would be helpful for your child to complete swim lessons prior to joining swim team, the coaching staff will make that recommendation, which we ask be honored. Once proficiency is achieved via lessons, they are welcome to join at a pro- rated fee. This is to ensure your child’s safety, which is our driving concern.

Regular practice will begin on Monday, June 14, 2021, and will held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday throughout the season.  No practice will be on Wednesday and swim meet days. Swimmers are encouraged to attend as often as possible, but busy schedules are understood, and conflicts happen. Keep in mind, though, that skill and stamina develop through regular practicing.

Swim Team questions contact Swim Team Coordinator Mark at swimteam@bowmanwoods.com

Practice time 7am-9am.  During the first practice swimmers will be separated out by ability and assigned a specific time to attend practice.  This will be communicated from the coach after the first practice.  

Age Group:

  • 12 years and older
  • 11 years and younger

At the coach’s discretion your child may be asked to practice with a different level depending on their skills and competition experience. If you have a schedule conflict and want your swimmer to practice at an alternate time it must be approved by the coaches prior to changing times.

Parents:

  • You will be asked to do two things to support our swim team this summer. The first is that you will be asked to volunteer at home meets. If everyone does their part, we would all have to volunteer for only one of the two meets. That is fair and I would hope you would agree. None of us are professionals at this, but by using our collective talents we will be able to: Direct Traffic, Set Up, Grill, Serve Food, Announce Events, Time, Ribbons, Run Clerk of Course, and Run Ribbons. You are always encouraged to pause and watch your swimmer.

  • The second thing I will ask of you is food donations prior to the home meets, this allows us to turn a profit, which in turn helps us offset the cost of equipment for the team. Thank you for helping!

Ice Cream Social (Meet the Coaches) Date:  June 6th at 6 PM at the pool 

There will be an ice social before the season kicks off. We will get the opportunity to hear from the coaches to get their perspective and get questions answered. We do not have a standard suit for the swimmers, so any suit you're comfortable with (we prefer a blue) is preferred.

This is the meet schedule for 2021 

    • June 29 at Elmcrest
    • July 13 hosting CRCC 
    • July 20 hosting Metro Y

Make sure your swimmers indicate their availability and stroke preferences for EACH of the meets. We will be using a phone based signup application that uses your phone this summer. More information to come....
