The Briarwood Park Conservancy is graciously supporting a roll-out of the Briarwood Swim Team this summer. It will comprise a young and vibrant group of swimmers to participate in the Brookhaven Recreational Swim League (along with Murphey-Candler and Lynwood). The goal is to provide a low-cost opportunity for children in our community to be exposed to the fun and fitness of participating on a swim team.

  • We are a 100% volunteer organization that is family focused, relaxed and friendly.
  • The Briarwood Swim Team is open to any swimmer through the age of 18 who can swim one length of the pool unassisted, in any stroke.

Joining the Briarwood Swim Team is a great way to:                               Briarwood Barracudas logo

  • Build self-confidence and self-discipline.
  • Work on stroke techniques and racing skills.
  • Have fun with old friends and make new friends.
  • Get to write on yourself with a sharpie and not get in trouble.

Joining the Briarwood Swim Team is not:

  • A beginner’s swim class. If unsure about your child’s ability, please let the coach evaluate your child.
  • An aqua-Zumba class.

Mark Your Calendar and Get Your Swim On!

  • Practices begin June 20, 6:30 – 7:30pm Tuesdays and Fridays.
  • A parent meeting will be held June 20th at Lynwood, due to pool repair
  • Registration forms and payments collected at that time. Meet Coach Averya!
  • Swim meets: June 28, July 12, 19 and 26. All Saturday meets begin promptly at 8:00 am.


  • $52 paid to Briarwood Park Conservancy to cover the use of the pool, lifeguards, and insurance as well as ribbons, an end of season medal and end of season party.
  • $19 for a suit
  • $10 for a 2014 team t-shirt
