Fundraising Cards Pick up June 1

Remember to stop by the pool on Wednesday June 1 between 12-1 pm or 6-7 pm. to pick up your fundraiser cards and picture packets.


Photos will be at the pool on Momday June 6th @ 5 pm.


While you’re picking that up, check out the progress of the new liner.  The installation is somewhat ahead of schedule.

Registration Deadline is near

The registration to register for the 2016 summer swim & dive team is Saturday May 28th.  If you are planning to join the team this summer please make sure to turn in your registration by the end of the day.  All forms are available on this website.  They can be found under the “FORMS” link. Forms are also available on the Team Unify website as well.

Practice is still re-scheduled to begin on Monday June 13th.  The last I heard from the Village was at the council meeting on Monday 23d when I was advised my Mayor Pape that they are still looking at a June 6-8 opening time frame.  He also cautioned me that any rain would delay our open.  If you have any further questions regarding the pool contact the Village offices.

We are still working on rescheduling our first two home meets of June 8 & 15.  We will advise you as soon as possible when the reschedule dates are available.

2016 Swim/Dive Season Start DELAYED

Parents and swimmers:

Due to circumstances out of our control, practices will not be able to start on June 1st as anticipated. There has been a delay in the replacement of the pool liner.


At this time, we are still meeting at the pool on June 1st to hand out fundraiser cards and picture packets.  Please stop by between 12-1 pm or 6-7 pm.  If neither time will work for you, please let us know and we will make accommodations. Photos will still be at the pool on June 6th @ 5 pm.


We have been given the date of June 8th by the town council for the opening of the pool. Our goal is to begin practices Monday, June 13th, regular times. We are currently working on rescheduling the first 2 home meets as well. The Barracudas committee will do our best to keep everyone informed of any and all changes as soon as they are known.
