Once again, Family Guardian, a leading insurance and financial services provider in The Bahamas, has partnered with and given sponsorship to the Barracuda Swim Club in its continued effort to build the sport of swimming in The Bahamas.
Lyrone Burrows, president of FamGuard Corporation was on hand to make the donation and expressed his pleasure to be teaming up again with the Barracuda Swim Club. "We are delighted to have developed such a strong partnership with the Barracuda Swim Club," said Burrows. "This yearly collaboration affords us the opportunity to support young, talented swimmers as they grow and develop their skills."
Dion Gibson, president of the Barracuda Swim Club stated: "Family Guardian has supported our club for 29 years. The sport of swimming is stronger than ever in The Bahamas. The Bahamas swimming team's win in this year's CARIFTA championships is evidence of the growth and talent of our swimmers. We are grateful to Family Guardian, and look forward to this continued relationship for the development of our club and the sport of swimming."
The 29th Family Guardian swim meet will be held at the Betty Kelly Kenning Aquatic Centre on Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8, 2014.

The Barracuda Swim Club is a non-profit, parent-run organization that is dedicated to building the youth of our nation through swimming. The club has developed hundreds of swimmers, and continues to ensure that the sport grows for generations to come as they guide and build young champions who have a passion and determination to be Olympians.
