Welcome to Red Piranha Swimming's Team Website, formerly Kingsport Piranhas.

Our swim team is always looking for new local talent. If you, a family member, or a friend can swim fast or want to learn how, you may be interested in joining our swim club. We are a competitive swim team offering professional coaching designed to give swimmers the tools to reach their peak performance potential. We swim all year and welcome all ages and abilities, 4 & up. Our swim school program, SwimAmerica, is the leading developmental swim program in the Tri-Cities. We offer 50% discount options for swimmers accepted in the federal student lunch program; ask us for more details. Everyone is welcome to tryout; but BEWARE, our School of Red Piranhas like SWIMMING FAST!!!

Registration for the 2022/23 RPS season is now open!
East Tennessee Summer Swim League starts up in April; join us to swim as a Red Piranha!

The coaching staff would like to invite all new swimmers interested in joining Red Piranha Swimming to our Beginner Instructional Clinics & Tryouts at either Dobyns-Bennett Pool or Tennessee High Pool. In the clinic, we will evaluate the swimmer's skill levels and provide instructional insight into potential improvement. We provide a quick detailed run through of all the strokes and offer a few key advanced tips. At the end of the clinic, the swimmers will be tested and evaluated in all aspects of competition swimming. After the clinic, we can either place the swimmer into our competitive program according to their age and skill level or we can place the swimmer into our SwimAmerica developmental stroke school for more specific training. If interested, click the registration tab for more information on upcoming clinics. Become a Red Piranha & Chomp up the Competition!!!

The Mission of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve their swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to national competitor. Our Goal is to maximize quality time in the pool by incorporating science & technology for immediate feedback allowing for a high level of efficient training while still minimizing cost for our members. Our Vision is to become one of the top developmental swimming programs in the Southeastern Swimming LSC. Our Team Values for inspiring Positive Moral are Sportsmanship, Camaraderie, & Team Spirit!

We practice at Dobyns-Bennet High School, (KAC) Kingsport Aquatic Center, & Bristol Tennessee High Viking Hall Pool
