2024 Team Suits & Equipment - Potomac Crossing Barracudas 05/30/2024

FINS -- our coaches would like to start using fins during practices starting next week on Monday. So if you have some, please start bringing them.

- IF you need FINS:

- We have about 20+ pairs of BRAND NEW little kids FLEXFIN TYR fins in sizes # # , XXS, XS and S that were donated to us, and we will sell for $10 at the pool today and Monday. Cash or check only.

- We also have about 10 pairs of used fins in M/L we will sell for $5

- Veteran swim parents, if you have any fins your swimmer(s) have outgrown that are in good shape, please consider donating them. We will re-sell them as part of a fundraiser for our junior coaches!

- You can also purchase fins online. See our recommendations https://pcbarracudas.swimtopia.com/2024-team-suit . They can be purchased on Amazon, SwimOutlet, and other online retailers.

- We have a backup bin at practice for anyone that doesn't have fins, but can't guarantee we have your size available

2024 Team Suits & Equipment - Potomac Crossing Barracudas These are our team suits for 2023 and 2024 (we just learned that these suits may be hard to find so we are providing a couple of other options below) TYR Vitric Trinityfit One Piece or Diamondfit One Piece Swimsuit for the girls and TYR Vitric Jammer for the boys.

Weather Policy

- As long as the pool is open (and it's safe), we will try our best to hold practices

- In general, we will hold practices if the air temperature is 60F or higher and the water temperature is above 75F. We may modify practices and in-water/pool time as coaches deem appropriate per age group. E.g. it's easier for the older kids to stay warm when constantly moving than little swimmers shivering at the edge of the pool.

- Attendance is always OPTIONAL and we ask that you make the best decision for your swimmer(s) and family.

- IF practice is cancelled, we will send a notification at the latest 30 minutes ahead of time. If weather is moving through, we may just have to cancel certain practice groups, as it might be safe to hold earlier/later practices. We can't control weather!

Reminder; today and tomorrow are the last days to order your CAPS and spirit wear. There will be a later round of spirit wear, but this won't arrive much before the end of the season. Reach out to Affie ([email protected]) if you need anything. All spirit wear will be delivered to families at practices as soon as we get them!

Nothing says "I Love Swim Team" like spirit wear!

We are still looking for an Assistant Computer Operator!​ Best volunteer job! Watch your swimmer(s) swim and spend the rest of the meet in the shade helping entering times. No computer skills necessary! Easy job at our 4 home meets and your family is set for the season -- no other volunteer hours required!
We know you can do that and want to help out!

We are thrilled to announce some exciting updates based on survey feedback over the years. Starting this season, customized caps are available for your swimmers! These high-quality silicone caps can be personalized with your swimmer's last name, providing a unique and identifiable touch. As shared during registration, swimmers will not be receiving standard caps this year as part of the registration package (it's completely fine to wear caps from previous years or plain blue caps). However, we're delighted to provide this new custom option for those interested.
Each order includes two caps with the same customization for both. This is particularly convenient for families with multiple swimmers on the team and for those who want to easily identify their swimmers during practices and meets. Customized cap orders are available for a limited time only. The deadline is next Thursday, May 16th.

In addition to the customized caps, we're also excited to introduce some new options for spirit wear this season. To ensure you're among the first to receive your gear, we recommend placing your order by May 20th. This will guarantee you're geared up early in the season and ready to show off your team spirit!

Don't miss out on these fantastic opportunities to personalize your swim gear and show your team pride. Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to a fantastic season ahead!

Please join us in welcoming Olga Riley as the new treasurer for the Potomac Crossing Barracudas! A big thank you to her for stepping up as volunteer for this position. We thank Annette for her many years of service and wish both her and Emma the very best going forward. They will both be so greatly missed!

04/15/2024

A quick reminder that your registration is not complete until we have received your PAYMENT (unless you are waiting for an evaluation of your swimmer(s)). Please note that we will have to add a late fee to any payments not received by May 1st, 2024 regardless of when you registered your swimmer(s). We need to order shirts, and need to make plans for volunteer hours, practice times etc. which is why we need firm commitments by the end of this month (via your payment).

We have currently 25 spots left on the main team, so if you are still considering, don't delay. Regular registration closes on April 30th.

Speaking of PAYMENTS, we need more OFFICIALS (50% off one swimmer)! Where are my former parent swimmers at? YOU know you can do this (as can everyone else)!

A note from Amy Casey:

Dear Barracudas Swimmers and Families,

After so many amazing seasons, I have decided to retire from my position as head coach. It was not an easy decision but as my own kids have gotten older, I realize that our time together has become limited due to their schooling, jobs, and busy social schedules. We are going to spend as much time as we can this summer traveling and enjoying adventures together. It has been a privilege to be a part of the Barracuda Family and see so many swimmers grow in the sport and into such amazing young adults. The camaraderie and compassion of the PCB team over the years has made the team stand out among others and created a supportive environment for those just starting their swimming journey. To all of the Board members and supportive families, thank you for all you do! Your commitment is unwavering and you have been the foundation for our team, making it all happen. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to coach the Barracudas all these years and be a part of your lives. I will always treasure our time together and look forward to many more years cheering on deck!

Best of luck, Coach Amy

Hello Barracudas,

As of this morning our Mini Barracudas team is full and we are staring a waitlist for anyone who is interested in registering this summer. Our mini team fills up quickly because we ask our returning minis and new swimmers 7 and under to register here, then complete an evaluation. We anticipate MANY spots opening on the mini team as swimmers evaluate and are either qualified for the main team or remain on the mini team. If you would like to be included on the waitlist or have any question about this please email Lisa Karg ([email protected])

Thanks so much, we're looking forward to a great summer season!
