Why be a BARRACUDA?
There are several reasons that parents of hundreds of youth have joined the Barracuda family over the years versus other organizations, but here are just a few:
1. All games are LOCAL! Games are never more than 15 miles from the Beach. In fact, the majority of our games our played right here on Panama City Beach without ever having to cross a bridge. NO TRAVELING!
2. Coaching. Most of our coaches have coached within our organization for several years. In many cases, our coaches work with kids in other sports as well...Baseball, Basketball, and Soccer. You know that when your child plays with the Barracudas, they'll not only learn football, but also sportsmanship and leadership. Most importantly, our coaches have the experience to make it as safe as possible.
3. Go where the growth is. The Barracudas have grown from a small organization begging for participants and coaches, to one of the largest sanctioned areas in the Northwest Florida Pop Warner Conference. Great kids and great parents made it all possible.
4. Winning is Fun. It isn't everything, but it sure is fun when your team wins. Oh sure, we've had teams with down years, but our teams our always competitive.
