Note from our coaches

Please remember that your swimmer can only practice during their age group practice time. We have divided up the swimmers to maintain the safest swim environment.


We also want your swimmers to get to know their coaches and teammates in their age groups. It's much easier to find your teammates on a relay if you already know who they are from practice.

All times must entered by Sunday, 5/5. Without a recorded time, your swimmer won't be able to swim in the first meet.

volunteers

Volunteer spots for time trials will open tonight, Sunday, April 28th @ 8pm on our website. Please only sign up for one spot per family. These are on a first come, first serve basis, so I would recommend you set up a reminder on your phone for every Sunday at 8pm. Each week, volunteer spots will open at that time.

NWAL Officials

Do you want to have the best seat in the house for swim meets? Do you want to wear a cool uniform at every meet? Do you want to just relax every Sunday night at 8 pm and not worry about signing up to volunteer? Then being an NWAL Official for the Bridgeland Barracudas might be perfect for you.


We are looking for 4 more officials this season. The training only takes a few hours and is free.
