What to expect at Splash Night
Your swimmer will need to bring a suit, towel, goggles, swim cap (optional) and be prepared to be in the water for a 5 - 10 minute evaluation. After each evaluation a Piranhas Swim Club coach will take a few minutes to answer any questions you may have.
Most swimmers will join one of our novice groups: a novice/entry level practice group designed to teach them how to swim all four competitive strokes properly, starts, turns, streamlines, and basic swimming stamina. This group is non-competitive (although meets are offered periodically): it is designed to prepare swimmers to enter the Age Group prep training group, begin competition, and foster a love for the sport.
Two Week Trial Memberships
Piranhas Swim Club will offer any new family the option of trying our club out commitment-free for two weeks. Once the two week trial is over, you will no longer be eligible for a full refund and will be subject to the Family Commitment Policy (see billing policies for details).
All swimmer who stay on the team will receive a Team Cap as our way of saying, "WELCOME!"
