Berkeley Barracudas at King Pool

Hi mamas and papas!  

Does anyone have any updated information on the Berkeley Barracudas swim team at King Pool?  See below for that the Berkeley website has.  I'm wondering if the beginners program is ok for a 5.5 year-old just learning how to swim?  I hear the King Pool is heated as well - anyone know to how many degrees?  Strawberry Canyon Pool advertises 80-81 degrees, and that feels pretty chilly still.  Any information would be helpful!  Thank you!
