TASC's Barracuda Recreational program is ideal for teens 13-17 years old, who love the water and want to learn fun artistic swimming skills in a team environment as they develop swim skills and increase their strength, endurance and level of flexibility.
Program levels and then teams are based on age, experience and skill levels according to the national, Canadian Artistic Swimming (CAS) AquaGO skill development program and LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development) program like other sports. Swimmers progress through the levels as they develop more challenging artistic swimming skills.
All Recreational programs focus on 5 key areas:
- Swimming Fundamentals
- Artistic Swimming Skills
- Athletic Abilities/Physical Literacy
- Routine performance and teamwork
All swimmers will have the opportunity to swim in a mermaid or shark tail and all programs except our new Mini-session will participate in one or both of our Club Watershows (Dec and June).
