Swim Teams


Ages: 6-18 years
This is a competitive swim team that values hard work, integrity, sportsmanship, and team work. This team is perfect for swimmers who enjoy healthy and fun competition, and want to reach new personal goals. The Barracudas are broken up into three groups: Novice, Age, and Junior/Senior. The novice group is generally a fit for our younger beginner swimmers, the age group makes up most of the team, and the Junior/Senior group is for our older, and/or more advanced swimmers. Group assignments and practice times will be determined based on tryout performance.

The Barracudas Swim Team is open to both SJJCC members and nonmembers. The season will run from September (tryouts)-April.
$1,250 members / $1,700 nonmembers

Ages: 6-10 years
The novice group is ideal for swimmers who want the swim team structure and skill, but aren’t quite ready for the intensity of the full swim team season. Novices will not be attending our stroke clinics, but may be permitted to compete in meets upon a recommendation from the head coach.
$1,100 members / $1,600 nonmembers

Ages: 14-18 years
The varsity group is specifically for swimmers that are on their high school swim team, and will be missing a large part of the season due to school swim team obligations. This is a great way to improve performance, and to continue training in between seasons and during the off-season.
$650 members / $850 nonmembers
