We believe in
We believe in OUTSTANDING TECHNIQUE
Water is 800 times more dense than air. Figuring out how to move through the water efficiently determines how well you swim far more than being in great shape. Until you are an efficient swimmer, it’s paramount that you learn proper technique before you worry about improving your swimming fitness. At The Piranha, we will put a great importance on technique on a daily basis. From video analysis, to specific dry land exercises, to feedback, technique will always remain a top priority with all our athletes.
We Believe in developing a POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT
Being successful in swimming is a long journey. No matter how talented your child is, there will be ups and downs; they will have good workouts, challenging workouts and there will be moments they achieve the best time at swim meets as well as failure to achieve a specific goal. Positivity will start on deck with our coaches and we expect our swimmers and parents to have the same attitude throughout every challenge.
We believe in FAST SWIMMING
At The Piranha, we design the workouts to make your child swim fast. We base our approach on more than 20 years of experience. We train in a 25 yard pool and a 50 meter pool, but very often your child will be training in a 15 or 10 yard pool. The rationale behind this is simple: shorter distance means more turns, more underwater kick, less strokes, less fatigue and better technique and speedier workouts. This training concept is applied throughout the country in some of the best programs with senior athletes. It is our strong beliefs that by implementing this training method at a young age your child will improve much faster.
We believe in PROGRESSIVE DRYLAND at all age
Dryland training is the foundation of any good performance. We will cover all the aspects of the athletic development of your child. Motor Skill acquisition, inter-muscular coordination, gains in general fitness, flexibility, muscle size and stroke-specific strength. The dry land training is always performed under the supervision of a coach and in a safe environment. Your child must have a pair of shorts, a t-shirt and running shoes at each practice.
