The swim team season is right around the corner. We are fortunate to have the Briar Chapel Barracuda team right here in our neighborhood! As a part of the Chapel Hill Summer Swim League, we compete against other local teams during the summer and cap it all off with a Championship meet at UNC in July. Being on the team is a fun way to get great exercise, meet new friends, and learn swim skills you'll have for life! We welcome all pool members, ages 4-18, who are able to swim one lap across the pool unassisted. Practice begins on May 15th.
The registration period is March 1-March 31. You can register your child online through our website. Payment must be made by check and mailed or dropped off with Ali in the clubhouse. After March 31, we will accept additional swimmers only as space allows in each age group. The cost is $150 per swimmer, and $135 for siblings. A reduced price for 15-18 year olds will be announced soon.
Teens ages 13 and up (entering 8th grade or higher) may apply to volunteer as Junior Coaches. These swimmers help our younger swimmers at practices and meets. Applications will be available at registration.
This year, we are replacing the Jr. Barracuda program with a Barracuda Prep group for swimmers who are almost able to swim the length of the pool unassisted and will likely need three weeks or less to qualify for the team. All new swimmers, ages 7 and younger, will be evaluated the week of March 27-31 at the Chapel Hill Community Center. Our coaches will determine if each swimmer is qualified for the team, for Barracuda prep, or will be recommended for swim lessons. If you are not sure if your child will qualify for the team, you should wait to register until after evaluations.
