The Bella Casa Barracudas are swimmers aged 5 to 18 that compete in fun summer swim competition. Swimmers 6 and Under may swim 15 yards in three events; freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke. 6 and Under swimmers may be asked by the coaching staff to "swim up" with the 7/8 age group in order to complete a relay team. Swimmers in the 7/8 and 9/10 age groups may compete in the events of one length each, or 25 yards of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and are eligible to swim in the medley and freestyle relay. Swimmers 11/12, 13/14 and 15 and Up may compete in the same events but swimming two lengths of the pool, or 50 yards.
The Bella Casa Barracudas offer a developmental program, termed the Small Frys, for any aged swimmer that is unable to swim one length of the pool independently, 25 yards. These swimmers are given the opportunity to practice with their age group and are evaluated weekly on their ability to "graduate" into being eligible to swim at any of the dual swim meets. They are full fledged members of the team, and will receive a team t-shirt, a swim cap and are welcome to the end of season banquet where their efforts will be recognized along with their teammates.
