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!
