Brisbane Tritons join the Barracudas family

The Brisbane Barracudas are delighted to welcome the Brisbane Tritons to their club.  Following the success of the Melbourne Surge and the Sydney Stingers, the Barracudas have been working with members of the Brisbane gay community to establish the Brisbane Tritons.

The Brisbane Tritons are an open and inclusive team of gay water polo players that encourages participants of any age, level or ability, to play water polo in a fun and social environment.   Over the past few months, the Tritons have been training under the guidance of the Barracudas Academy Coach Simon Daley.received_10156985631235372

To assist the Tritons in growing their team and their brand, the Brisbane Barracudas have entered into a partnership with the Tritons which has already been proven beneficial to both parties.  The Tritons now join the Melbourne Surge and the Sydney Stingers as the third LGBTI water polo team and planning is underway to have the Surge and the Stingers come to Brisbane to play in an event similar to the Pride Cup held earlier this year in Melbourne.

Cole Miller

Vale Cole Miller #10

Brisbane Barracudas are deeply saddened to learn that Cole Miller has passed away in a Brisbane hospital following the tragic incident that occurred on January 3rd.

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.
