Stroke School Barracuda


Barracuda is the third level in our Stroke School Program. Now that swimmers are proficient in all 4 strokes, know how to do Flip Turns in Freestyle and Backstroke, and can safely and effectively perform a racing dive, Barracuda is run like a traditional swim team practice, except we keep our groups small so that our Coaches can hone in on the fine details of every stroke and connect with each and every swimmer. With a Coach on the pool deck, we focus not only on teaching excellent swimming, but on developing an aerobic base for swimmers to build endurance. Swimmers will perform drills and sets that increase their speed and efficiency in all 4 strokes, as well as various activities to improve their Flip Turns, Racing Dives, and I.M. turns.

Your swimmer will be taught:

  • Increased endurance and fitness
  • Enhanced technique in Butterfly and Breaststroke
  • Racing Dives and Breakouts for all 4 strokes
  • Increased speed in Freestyle and Backstroke Flip Turns
  • I.M. Turns
  • Racing strategy

This is a 45-minute practice with a maximum student to teacher ratio of 7:1. Monthly tuition is $99 based on one session per week. A 15% discount will be applied for any additional weekly sessions.
