President's Message

Dear Fellow Barracudas,

A warm welcome to all new and returning families for this 2018 season.

EXCELLENCE BEYOND THE POOL is our club vision. Our community of athletes, coaches and parent volunteers has a long and dedicated history of providing our youth with opportunities to train, compete, achieve excellence and life skills in the pool and beyond.

Last season we enjoyed many successes in all our program areas - swimming, water polo and diving. Many of our athletes reached provincials competitions, some brought home meet records and medals, but more importantly, everyone ended the season knowing they had trained hard and achieved their personal best which is the seed to excellence. We hope to build on this success with even higher levels of participation at competitions by both athletes and their supportive parents.

We are pleased to announce we have several new additions to our talented coaching team. James Cormier will assume the position of Head Coach of Kensington Pool and Araya Therrien takes the role of Head Coach at MacPherson pool. Niallan Collier will be Senior Coach at MacPherson and our own former Barracuda, Brady Liu, will coach the junior group at Kensington. Grace Ni, our former head coach takes over the role of Head Coach of Junior Prep to develop the next generation of competitive swimmers and coaches!

On the Water Polo side Con Kubada remains head coach of Water Polo assisted by Erica and Alessia Marquez.

We warmly welcome the lovely and talent Liz Durward as Head Coach of Dive.

Please link to the coaches page to learn more about our talented coaches.

The new and returning coaches will help all ourswimmers, water polo players and divers reach their personal best.

As you can imagine, all this doesn't happen over night and on its own.The Barracudas executive team has been working hard over the winter months to
ensure that we build on the success of our previous seasons.

Looking forward to greatpractices, swim meets, water polo tournaments and dive meets. Let's not forget the fun team bonding events either!

Enjoy the new season.

Angela Battiston,
