British Swim School of Milwaukee South & Western Suburbs Launches Barracuda Swim Team

Owners Joel and Marnie Gannon Step Up to Fill a Crucial Void in Local Competitive Swimming

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — British Swim School of Milwaukee South & Western Suburbs is thrilled to announce the formation of the Barracudas Swim Team. This new venture aims to fill a significant gap in the local sports scene, left by the discontinuation of the Piranhas Competitive Swim Team by the YMCA at Pabst Farms.

“British Swim School has always been great about creating safe and happy swimmers, and this was a golden opportunity to extend that mission to the larger swimming community.”

Due to financial constraints, the YMCA swim team was disbanded, leaving a void for young swimmers in the community. Recognizing this need, Joel and Marnie Gannon, owners of British Swim School of Milwaukee South & Western Suburbs, were contacted by a YMCA family member who suggested they look into taking on a team and they followed through with the idea.

“The moment we were contacted and confirmed that we’d be able to secure Coach Guy and a location for competitive practices, we knew it was time to start a team. British Swim School has always been great about creating safe and happy swimmers, and this was a golden opportunity to extend that mission to the larger swimming community,” said Joel Gannon, co-owner of British Swim School of Milwaukee South & Western Suburbs.

Expanding into competitive swimming made sense for the Gannon’s, who opened their British Swim School franchise in 2017. The couple has been stalwart advocates for water safety and swimming education ever since.

“We may be new to the competitive swimming scene, but our commitment to creating a supportive environment for those who love the water has always been paramount,” he added.

A Collaborative Initiative

The Barracudas Swim Team is a collaborative effort between British Swim School and Carroll University. Competitive team practices will be held at Carroll University, while novice practices will be split between Carroll University and St. John’s Northwestern Academies, where British Swim School holds its premier swim lessons.

Since the announcement, several of the members of the discontinued YMCA team and many of the British Swim School’s swimmers have expressed an interest to join the new Barracuda Swim Team. Having more than 350 active swimmers at the levels that are technically ready to join the team, and with an additional more than 400 up-and-comers on the bench, the team is primed for many strong years ahead.
