About the Village Park
One of the Irvine Swim League's
founding teams, the Village Park Piranhas are a family-oriented,
volunteer-run organization with approximately 130 swimmers from the
Village Park community and its surrounding neighborhoods. Daily
practices and home meets are held at the Village Park pool as are
several social events for team families. Approximately 300+ people
attend every swim meet.
Team loyalty and camaraderie are
very strong; some families have been Piranhas for multiple
generations and some have joined with young children who went on to
become team coaches.

We want our swimmers to have fun
by developing their physical skills, making new friends and
renewing old ones, gaining self-confidence, improving their
personal event times, learning sportsmanship, and enjoying safe and
friendly competition. We want to cheer each swimmer on, helping
them to do their best.
