About the Team
  1. Do you have to reside in Bridgeland to join the team?
    Yes.  The Bridgeland HOA requires all team members to reside in Bridgeland except for those families that started on the team when the team was originated.  Contact the Bridgeland HOA if you are uncertain about your eligibility based on your residency.
  2. How old must a swimmer be to join the team?
    We have swimmers ranging in age from age 5 to 18.
  3. Do I have to be a good swimmer to join the team?
    All you need to be able to do is swim 25-meters of freestyle and backstroke. This is the length of most pools.
  4. What if I'm involved in other sports?
    Several of our swimmers participate in other activities, too. Our practices are usually offered several days a week to allow for more opportunities to participate.
  5. Are meets held every weekend?
    Typically, there are 5-6 meets starting in mid May with the Championship Divisional meet and Invitational meets after the regular season has ended. For 2021, we will be splitting each meet into two groups: 10 Under and 11 Up. There will be three meets per age group.
  6. Is there a lot of travel involved?
    Most of our meets are in the Northwest Houston area and at our home pool.
  7. Where are practices held?
    Practices are held at the Lakeland Village Aquatics Center in Bridgeland.
  8. Do the boys have to wear "Speedos"?
    No, although they are still around, most boys opt for the knee-length "jammer" suit.
  9. What is the cost?
    Summer 2021 Rates are To Be Determined.
  10. How are Relays Determined?  The computer selects the top 12 times. The 4 fastest are in the "A" relay, the next 4 fastest are in the "B" relay and the next 4 fastest are in the "C" relay. Alternates in relays are also chosen the same way. If a swimmer in the "A" relay is unavailable, the fast on the "B" relay will move up and the others will follow. The 13th fastest now becomes part of the "C" relay. The coach will only change relays based on legal strokes, kids leaving early, etc. 
  11. What is your bullying policy? The Bridgeland Barracuda Swim Team has a Zero Tolerance Policy in regards to bullying and unsportsmanlike conduct. We hold our swimmers to a high standard of respect and will continue to monitor any incidents that may occur before, during and after practice, swim meets or any BBST related functions.
  • Be respectful (swimmers, coaches and parents- even on the other team) 
  • Be supportive of all swimmers 
  • Have a positive attitude 
  • Be willing to learn (ask coaches what you can do to improve) 
  • Practice self-control (We understand emotions come with winning and losing, but learning the appropriate way to act towards others after a win or a loss) We are so excited for everyone to have the best 2021 CUDA season!  

The following disciplinary actions will be applied if bullying/unsportsmanlike conduct is reported:

  • Verbal warning to the age group to address issue as a whole and parent notification (i.e., email, remind, etc.)
  •  One week suspension from practice and meet
  • Removal from the swim team without a refund
