Swim Team

The Wheaton Park District Barracudas Swim Team competes in the West Suburban Swim Conference. Our team is made up of boys and girls from ages 6 to 18 who compete in their own age groups. Swim Team is not a swim lesson program. Therefore, participants must be able to swim laps in deep water comfortably and have a basic knowledge of the components of swim team. The head coach reserves the right to ask that a child be placed in swim lessons (when available) in order to improve his or her skills before being admitted to the swim team. The swim team is recreational.

Teams compete at home and away. The team fee covers coaching staff, team shirt, and league fees. A team swimsuit is selected, the cost of which is not included in the fee. The team swimsuit is not mandatory.

Parents are required to volunteer to work at least three meets total (home or away) and are required to work at one of the conference meets. Detailed information on all volunteer positions will be available at this meeting as well.

Discount available for enrollment of 3 or more children.
