Barracudas swim team accepting registrants for 2022 summer season

Special to The Clinton Courier

Barracuda Swim Team

The Clinton Family YMCA Swim Team, the Barracudas, is a competitive team that offers fun in the water in a positive environment.

Serving children ages 5-18, the team is currently open for registration for its summer season.

Children who wish to join the Barracudas must be able to swim, but participants will receive guidance on improving skills while swimming competitively at local levels through the Jackson Swim Association.

The team competes in city meets and every year has had swimmers take home high scores and ribbons from different competitions. Over the past six years, the Y has had swimmers with impressive swimming stats.

The swim team begins practicing on May 21 and will continue through June 25. Practices will be held daily Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. until noon. Weekly swim meets will be held on Monday evenings beginning May 31. In order to join the swim team, the participant must be a member of the YMCA.

The cost to join the Barracudas team for the 2022 summer is $125. For those who are not yet swimmers, the Y will also offer swimming lessons throughout the summer.

The main goal for the Y is for children to make long lasting friendships and have fun. For more information about the programs offered at the Clinton YMCA, call 601-924-5812.
