Joining Requirements

Interested in joining Balfron Barracudas?

We ask for our swimmers to either be at Level 4 in Learn to Swim program (or an equivalent) or above, or be able to swim three difference strokes for 50 meters (two lengths of Balfron pool) without stopping. Swimmers should be able to swim for an Hour long training session with breaks.

We normally ask swimmers to come along for a trial if they are interested in joining.  Contact if you wish to arrange a trial.

We often have a waiting list in place as  most of our training sessions are currently full.

We invite a swimmer to come along for a trial (normally Saturday B Group 11:30-12:30) session where they will join in with a regular training session to see how they get on and if they like it and allow us to assess the ability of the swimmer.

Once we have seen the swimmers in a session then we can assess which group is most suitable and which sessions we have spaces available (or be put on the waiting list for an available slot)

We are a friendly and welcoming club so this wont be a scary experience! please get in touch if  you have any further questions.
