Barracudas Swim Team
The Mountaire Barracudas have become one of the most dominant swims team in the area. Though the Barracudas are competitive, we focus on sportsmanship, technique and endurance through positive reinforcement. Our swimmers vary in age (5 to 18) and ability and all levels are welcome. Our swimmers want to improve (and they will!) during the course of the season.
We look forward to your child’s participation on our Barracuda swim team, and we look forward to working with you. The success of any team can be measured by the level of involvement of not only each swimmer, but also by that of each parent. Swim meets need parental involvement in order to run smoothly and efficiently.We need to have at least 40 volunteers at each meet. We ask that each family work 3 meets during the season. There are a variety of jobs, and none are difficult. Please look over the job descriptions and decide which is right for you.
We are very excited to have our coach Robert Villante returning this season! For the last seven years, Robert has been a swim coach in the Atlanta area, starting at the Buckhead YMCA and then Buckhead Aquatics, where he coaches a competitive swim program. Robert started his career with a developmental team at the "Y" then transitioned into USA sanctioned coaching at the competitive level. Robert believes that any child, no matter where or when they start swimming, has the potential to become great swimmer and great athlete with the proper guidance and support.
