Blackline Aquatics is a coach-operated partnership between two teams, Barracuda Aquatics Club (BAC) and Dolphin Aquatic Team (DAT).  The partnership involves our swimmers when they participate in a swim meet only.  Both clubs (BAC & DAT), operate their day to day operations seperately.  This partnership only effects BAC swimmers that are 13 years old or older.  Our 12 & Under swimmers are attached to BAC and our 13 & Older swimmers are attached to BLA at swim meets.  Below is a further explanation of BLA and the reasons why BAC started this partnership over 10 years ago.  The Blackline Experience!

ALLSTUDENTATHLETES.COM(ASA) has been developed by a team of college and high school coaches, former and present high school and college players, and internet networking experts to create the world's best internet recruiting service. ASA provides coaches with a database of athletes and athletes a database of college programs to interact with. There are several other internet recruiting sites on the web, and they all have one thing in common, that is that hardly anyone knows that they exist. Even though ALLSTUDENTATHLETES.COM(ASA) is relatively young, we have already achieved more exposure than any other recruiting site EVER! This means more athletes and more coaches than any other site in existence. ASA is the "go to" website for athletic recruiting purposes. Very soon ASA will be the household name for recruiting that everyone will go to first for their recruiting needs.
