What is it about swimming that attracts children? It can be early spring, quite chilly outside but there are kids ready to swim. They may not be able to breathe for a second or two after they plunge in, but they still sing the praises of how much fun it is. Late summer when it really gets can’t-stand-on-the-sidewalk hot and children don’t want to go anywhere, mix in the phrase “but they have a pool” and it’s a completely new ballgame.
The Bryant Barracuda Swim Team is announcing a couple of swim camps. The first one will be Friday, May 1 – Sunday, May 3. The next camp is Friday, May 15 – Sunday, May 17. The cost is $30 for one swimmer, $40 for two swimmers and $50 for three swimmers. Both camps will be held at the UALR Aquatic Center in Little Rock. For more information and to register go to www.salinecountyswimteam.com.[more]
Registration for the Barracudas is still open and can also be found at www.salinecountyswimteam.com. The first day of practice is May 26 and the first meet is on June 6. Pictures will be taken Monday, June 16, at the pool at Longhills Golf Club.
New this year is a second practice pool in the Midtown area in Bryant. This pool will be used in conjunction with the pool at Longhills Golf Club. Coach Todd Hunter will be returning from Houston, Texas to coach the Barracuda’s again this summer.
Children do love to swim! The Bryant Barracudas are a great way to let children participate in something they love while learning true competition, sportsmanship and receiving some great exercise.
