Meet entries philosophy

Hi Barracudas! I wanted to take a moment to communicate with you all again about my philosophy on meet entries. It occurred to me that I hadn’t done that in awhile…Some of you may ask, “why do you have us send in meet entry preferences when you end up changing them anyway?” That’s a great question. Let me explain…
Every swimmer is different and has different needs and goals and abilities. So for one meet, there will be as many needs and goals and abilities as there are swimmers who sign up for the meet. I take each one of those into consideration every single meet. And I have trained my coaches to do the same, so that going forward even in my absence we continue this intentional, studied time of doing meet entries, for the success of all of our swimmers whatever their goals and needs and abilities are at that particular moment.
I could explain the little details of my process (and will if you really want to know). The short of it is, however, that often, maybe even most, times we as coaches take your submitted entry *preferences* into consideration. It helps us to know what events your child would *like* to swim. And we defer to those every time when there aren’t other factors at play (factors being: needing to swim an event they haven’t done in awhile, needing to challenge them to do a new event or an event they need to grow in confidence in, needing to get in a good day of training for them, etc).
Always know that we will not put your child in an event that we do not think they can handle! (Usually however they’re more ready than you, or they!, might think).
So please remember that your submitted entries are preferences and are not necessarily what events they will be put in; but that your submitted preferences help the coaches decide what events to put your kids in.
We usually try to get some if not all of their preferences, but will defer to helping them become the best swimmers they can be, and that might mean putting them in events you did not submit.

I hope this helps a little bit to know that we want your preferences but may not always heed those presences. =) When we don’t there is always a very good reason. And if you are not sure, never hesitate to ask.
I’m incredibly proud of how my assistant coaches are doing. I hope you are too. I know this team will continue to be a great success.

It has been an honor and a joy to be your coach.

See you at the pool (a few more times),
Coach Bug

Barracuda Swag Store is open!

The Barracuda Swag Store is finally open! We are still ordering the Next Level brand of tshirts. They are so soft and comfortable and such a great fit on everyone.

The Next Level lightweight hoodies are still available as well.

We have replaced our Dri-Fit shirts with a *NEW* style. They are no longer a solid grey or red. The colors are called Electric Silver and Electric Red, and they have a little more spunk to them. You’ll need to go to the ordering site and check them out. They’re pretty cool.  One note, the silver color comes in only adult sizes while the red comes in youth and adult sizes.

We will be offering a new 4″ window decal and there are still temporary tattoos available.
