"Building Character and Achievement through Teamwork"
Our goal is to have a nationally recognized aquatics program that builds on a tradition of excellence by teaching and training all levels of swimmers. We offer competitive programs for those who want to achieve their potential in competitive swimming and recreational programs for those who want to have healthy habits and enjoy the value of our team. We aim to combine individual development with team unity. We truly believe that by teaching the values of wellness and good health, we are giving today's children a chance to become tomorrow's leaders.
To achieve this vision, we will:
Strive to develop the full potential of each athlete regardless of his or her innate natural ability.
Consider every child as important and each will be invested in by the coaches.
Encourage an atmosphere of team unity in which coaches, athletes and parents all contribute to team success.
Foster a policy on racial, religious and ethnic nondiscrimination at all times and at all levels.
Project a positive team image to the community in order to increase team participation and community support.
Stress sportsmanship and teamwork through team spirit and mutual support.
Prepare swimmers to compete successfully at local, state, national, and international levels of competition in accordance with the rules of the governing body of the sport.
At each level of the Piranha Swim Team program, swimmers are instructed to strive for excellence. Excellence in this sense represents the achievement of the level at which you know that you have done your utmost to become the best you are capable of becoming. This philosophy is consistent throughout the program, and every swimmer, novice to Olympian, is encouraged to “Be the Best You Can Be”.
Consistent practice attendance will play a key role in your child's success at every level of the program. Each group in the program is offered a practice schedule that is appropriate for the age, and skill level of the swimmers in the group. If you want to get the most out of the program and maximize your child's opportunity to improve, attendance at every practice offered is ideal. The coaching staff has provided some guidelines for each training group.
