    Welcome to the South Briar Barracudas!

    Since the mid-1970's, the South Briar Barracudas Swim Team has been committed to working hard, having fun, and swimming fast. Located in the Energy Corridor of West Houston, the Barracudas are a member of the Briar Forest Swim League. We cater to any athlete from age 4 to age 18 who is looking to make swimming a part of their Summer.

    New Swimmers:

    Our coaches do not expect the swimmers to be experts, but they do need to be confident in the water, and comfortable swimming with their faces in the water. Swim practices are for refining stroke techniques, including diving, and building endurance/speed. If your child is inexperienced, we suggest enrolling your child in outside swim lessons to learn water safety skills and stroke fundamentals. In order to compete in swim meets, athletes must be able to swim 25 yards (1 length of the pool) freestyle in 75 seconds or less. 


    Cudas-In-Training (CIT) is a program for children who aren't quite ready to compete, but who are interested in learning from our coaches and gaining confidence. This is great for younger swimmers/siblings who are comfortable in the water, ready for instruction, have already had some basic swim lessons, but still need assistance getting across the pool. This is not a private swim lesson; rather CIT swimmers will strengthen their strokes to get ready for full-scale swim team. The ultimate goal of this “pre- team” program is training children to swim independently, all while having fun and discovering how great it is to be a BARRACUDA! They will have their own dedicated practices in May.  Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are unable to offer the CIT program for the 2021 season.
