Swim Team

For over 35 years, the Bolton Hill Barracudas has been BST’s swim team. The team provides children from five to 18 years old with a fun, nurturing, and rewarding summer swim program. The team is a member of the Central Maryland Swim League (CMSL), and is currently in CMSL Division 3. The team has enjoyed success, winning four division championships and sending some swimmers to invitational meets. The team includes about 100 swimmers each summer.

Children compete within age groups, not according to skill. The coaching staff, led by Ramsey Mihavetz, guides swimmers of all skill levels in stroke mechanics, starts and turns, and competition technique. The team prides itself on the consistency of its coaching from year to year.  Swimmers are given instruction in strokes including freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, and breaststroke. Young and inexperienced swimmers benefit from participation in the Junior Cudas, in which special instruction is offered in small, non-threatening groups. A strong emphasis is placed on sportsmanship, team spirit, and teammate support. In the Big Brother/Big Sister program, young swimmers are paired with older, more experienced members of the team for mentorship and to cheer for each other at the meets. Parents of swim team members must be BST members.

Barracudas coach Ramsey Mihavetz possesses a strong swimming and teaching background, including...

  • Swim coach for 20 years
  • Swam as a Bolton Hill Barracuda team member
