Vale Cole Miller #10
We would like to express our heartfelt condolences to Cole’s family, his Barracudas team mates and indeed the broader Water Polo community who are mourning the loss of a fine young man.
18 year old Cole Miller was in the prime of his life, a talented young water polo player reaping the rewards of his hard work and dedication to the sport he loved. This was his second season playing at the elite level with the National League and he had a promising career ahead of him.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Miller family and we respect the family’s privacy during this time of grief.
We wish to thank the broader sporting community for their condolences during this difficult time.
We have set up the Cole Miller Family Support Fund to assist the Miller family. We hope that this support will honour Cole’s memory as our teammate, friend and little brother.
Barracudas Women attend the Q-Sport Awards Night
It is a tremendous achievement for the team and for water polo as a sport to see our ladies in this calibre of sporting teams on Queensland’s biggest night of the year for Sport.
The winners were announced at a star studded Gala Evening at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and we thought all our Barras supporters would love to see our amazing female athletes out of their water polo caps and looking ridiculously glamorous!!! We hope to be back there next year and take out the win this time!!

Charity Melanoma Institute of Australia
(Oct 2015) Barracudas have chosen Melanoma Institute of Australia as their chosen charity to fundraise for at our Inaugural Season Launch. Being a sport where our children are playing and training in the sun, we feel it is vital for the kids to understand the danger of the sun on their skin, and to know about early detection for themselves AND their teammates.
Did you know that 25% of melanomas are detected by someone other than the person affected i.e. a friend, partner or family member?
