  • Monthly Dues: The monthly fees generally cover costs such as coach and staff salaries, pool rental, and any team supplies. Monthly fees will be billed on the 1st of the month and may also include any applicable one-time fees.  Monthly dues will begin October 1st.  Annual payments will not be available this year due to the uncertainty of the season.
  • Non-Recurring Fees: This fee would include meet fees, equipment or apparel fees. These fees will vary by group placement and meets attended. These fees are billed monthly on the first of the month via the credit card or checking account on file through the Barracudas website.  Each local meet includes a $5 BBA surcharge per swimmer.  Championship meets includes a $10 BBA surcharge per swimmer.

  • Late Fees: Any payments that are not completed by the 15th of the month will incur a $10 late fee per month.
  • Delinquent Fees:  A $10 fee will be assessed anytime your payment is declined. Example:  insufficient funds, invalid credit card number or expiration date, or self-chosen declined payment, etc.  BBA is charged every time a credit card is processed, regardless of if the payment goes through. In an effort to reduce the number of transactions. Please make sure your credit card is always current in the system.
