Our Future Barracuda Stroke School, falls under the umbrella of the Barracudas Swim Team and is for swimmers who have completed the swim lesson program (either at our Y or somewhere else) and enjoy competitive experiences yet may not be ready to fully compete with the Barracuda Swim Team. Program emphasis is on stroke improvement and endurance, as a stepping stone to the swim team.
Children will learn to complete the following skills:
- Drills of all 4 competitive strokes
- Understanding swim etiquette
- Usage of pool equipment including backstroke flags, diving blocks, and flip turn T’s.
Once ready, swimmers will have the opportunity to compete in the Bangor YMCA Barracudas’ home swim meets (must have a Y membership). Interested swimmers must be evaluated by the Future’s Instructor or a member of the Barracuda Coaching Staff before joining this class.
