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. We are part of the Gulf Coast Youth Football Association. 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.

“Hard work beats talent when talent don’t work hard.” Coach Steve
You define yourself.
Take pride in what you accomplish.
“Leadership is doing the right things.” Peter Drucker
The way a team play as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime. Babe Ruth
A team will always appreciate a great individual if he's willing to sacrifice for the group. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Discipline is based on pride, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of the goal or the fear of failure.
With self-discipline most anything is possible. – Theodore Roosevelt
