Lindsay’s Law

As many of you are aware, last August the state legislators passed Senate Bill 252, known as Lindsay’s Law. The law requires all youth athletes, parents/guardians, and coaches to annually complete a set of requirements prior to participating in any organized sports activity, including youth sports organizations like our swim & dive team.

Lindsay’s Law is about Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in youth athletes who are 19 years or younger who practice for or compete in athletic activities.

In addition to filling out & returning the required medical form each parent/guardian must also fill out and return a Lindsay’s Law signature form ALONG WITH THE ATHLETE.

Additionally the parent/guardian is also required to watch a short video (16:30 in length) prior to signing & returning the Lindsay’s Law signature form.

The parent/guardian will also receive a handout on Sudden Cardiac Arrest & Lindsay’s Law.

Barracudas In The News

The Evening Leader covers the St Marys Seahawks swim team all summer long. The only time The Barracudas ever get covered is when we swim against the St Marys team.

That was the case last week, June 29 in our meet against St Marys.

While New Bremen lost the meet, several of our swimmers were mentioned in The Evening Leader’s coverage.

Check out the link Barracudas in the Paper

Pictures Tonight

Remember, pictures are tonight at the pool at 5PM.

We had an athlete who can no longer swim this season due to an injury. The family now has a boys size 26 swim suit & a girls size 30 they no longer need.  If you are interested in purchasing these, please contact me.

Pictures, Fundraising Cards, T-Shirts & More


Swim & Dive pictures will at 5pm on Wednesday June 7 at the pool. Lange Photographics, will be taking pictures. Picture forms were placed in your folder in the file box at the pool. Lange will also have extra forms available Wednesday night.

Fundraising Cards

Fundraising Cards were also placed in your folder in the file box at the pool.  Please return all monies to Tracey (or any other Committee member) by the June 19 deadline.  I saved $56.70 using my 2016 card.  That was more than my $52.45 savings from my 2015 card.  AND I’m in need of a few 2017 cards.  So…If you see me, sell me a card or three!


If you purchased a t-shirt, they are in. Diane will have them available for pick-up during pictures on Wednesday beginning at 5pm

File Box

The file box will be at the pool daily. Have your athlete check it after each practice. Often times there are important reminders placed in your family file. You can even check it during any time that the pool is open. The file box may not be visible on the counter, but any of the lifeguards will allow you access to it, just ask.


IF you haven’t signed up for Remind yet, I strongly urge you to do so.  We use Remind as well as Team Unify to send out important information. Including schedule changes or cancelations due to weather. Last year at the Tecumseh meet, severe weather moved in. Many folks took shelter in their cars where they remained dry. Once the decision was made to cancel the meet, we sent a message notifying everyone of the cancelation.

To sign up send: @nbsw to 81010. It really is that simple.  IF you have a problem using 81010, send @nbsw to 419-549-8122 instead.  You may opt-out anytime by replying unsubscribe @nbsw

First Meet

Our first meet is Monday June 12.  There are still a few jobs that MUST get filled for that meet. Please sign onto your Team Unify account and sign up to work if you haven’t already done so.  It’s easy, just go to the Events page, click on job signup for the event you want. click small box on the open job you want, click on the “sign up” tab at the bottom of the page. A text box will pop up for contact information (I just put my name in there & sometimes cell number), click on the “sign up” tab in the pop up and you’re finished!
