• Thanks to our members’ love of the water, our private swim lessons increased 18% – that’s seven years in a row

where we have seen an increase!

• Group lessons were also a favorite; we had 492 participants this year – young and old.

• Because there was more activity in our pools than ever before, we added two new American Red Cross Instructors

to our staff.

• And always with an eye toward safety, we purchased 40 puddle jumpers (new safety jackets for young children) for

our members’ and campers’ use.

• Once again, our indoor pool was home to the Mighty Ducks, a swim team for children with special needs, triathlon

training groups and Union Catholic High School swimmers.

• There were 132 participants on our competitive Barracudas Swim Team – 73% returned from last year. Many of these

Barracudas began with our pre-team programs (Mini-Barracudas and IntraCudas) or our Swim Team Boot Camps!

• The Barracudas’ record was impressive: 13 Individual Team records, 7 Team Relay records, 2 State JCC records and

1 JCC All-Star record. Wow!

• Not only are our Barracudas talented swimmers, but they are also community-minded. There were 11 swimmers who

volunteered 60+ hours on behalf of the Barracudas. Three swimmers coordinated a “Swim-for-Food” donation drive that

collected 400+ pounds of food at our JCC All-Star Swim Meet. All Kosher items were donated to Jewish Family Services.
