Our philosophy is simple: to help our children to be the best he or she can be – both inside and outside the pool. We strive to teach life skills together with our world-class swimming skills, build a healthy self esteem, and teach our swimmers that you can achieve your goals through dedication, self-believe and hard work.
Prepare the child for the road, not the road for the child.
The club’s swimmers are skillfully coached under the watchful eye of the Head Coach, Heinz Dittrich, who also spends a lot of time preparing the swimmers mentally for upcoming events. Coach Heinz is a strong believer that the coach is just one of the pieces of the puzzle, and that the swimmer itself and his/her parents/guardian form the other pieces. “This is a combined effort”.
Ever since the establishment of Barracudas Aquarama, the club has been a major player to be reckoned with. The club’s swimmers continue to excel at all gala levels and hold various WP and SA records** During June 2012, Coach Heinz took a small team of just 11 senior swimmers to the Stuttgart International Swim Festival (Internationales Stuttgarter Schwimmfest) to compete against the top clubs in the world. Despite being the smallest club present, the swimmers achieved the almost unthinkable by finishing 3rd overall. In the process they’ve won 30 medals and broke 8 records.
