Swim suits


I've made a complaint to AGleam about how our new swimsuits are wearing.

They have been in contact with Q about possibly replacing them ALL. Q is only taking a small amount of responsibility by volunteering to replace 10 suits. We will continue to work on this.

If you are interested in a new suit please email your info to

Please include:


Suits style (brief, jammer, thick or think strap)


If you have multiple suits please include them all listed separately.

I will be randomly drawing the 10 suits out of a hat.

Coaches Corner


5-0! Great job Cuda Nation! It looked like it was going to be a hard fight, but we pulled ahead victorious against the Stars! We are heading in to our divisional championship stronger than ever! Let's finish out this season next week with a Bang and a Win!

This season has flown by and we are coming into our final meet before Invitationals. Please remember, all swimmers are allowed/able to swim in our Divisional Championship meet next week. We need all of our Cudas to bring their support, speed, and sportsmanship to Cy Ranch, and bring that trophy home!

There will only be a single A relay in each age group. During dual meets, we can have up to C relays. Since we are competing against 5 teams at once, we will all each have only one relay. It will be composed of the fastest swimmers based on seed and split times collected over the season. Finally, the biggest difference, the pool will be indoors with 8 lanes! This will make the meet run a bit faster, and allow swimmers the opportunity to get even faster times. Make sure all swimmers attend warm ups to get used to the blocks/flags/walls/etc.

This week's practices will include technique building as well as endurance training. We will finish the week off with our normal meet prep.

I am so proud of all the hard work of all of the Cuda swimmers this year! The improvements and achievements over this season is incredible. There is really no question when I say, Cuda Nation is the best NWAL swim team! Go Cudas!

Thank you again to all of our parents, volunteers, and board members! This team and the swim meets wouldn't run without you! Your hard work and dedication is so appreciated!

If you have any comments/concerns please contact me at Go Cudas!

Stay safe and swim happy!

Candy from your coaches

The Cuda Coaches want to see the swimmers after they swim each time at the meet!

When your Cuda gets out of the water after swimming in each event, have them go see the coaches. After giving them constructive feedback, the coaches will give your Cuda some candy!

This is a great time for your swimmer to ask about a DQ (disqualification) or to find out what to do better.

It doesn't matter if your Cuda is a 6 & under or an 18 year old, the coaches want to give them a high five and candy for their awesome swimming! Don't miss out!
