Victory Lakes Piranhas Developmental Swim Program- Guppies

In addition to our competitive swim program, the Victory Lakes Piranhas offer the Guppy Developmental Swim Program.  The registration fee is $125 and includes Guppy practice 4 times per week, a t shirt and a Guppy mini-meet at the end of the season.  Guppy practices run from June 20 through July 20 from 09:00-9:45 AM Mondays - Thursday.  Depending on registration numbers, practice times may be slightly altered to accomodate two sessions.   We are expanding the program to include 4 year olds; expanded to a 4 day program; and have made the times earlier in the morning in the activities pool to better accomodate pool and coaches to guppies ratio.  The Guppy program will culminate with their own swim meet on Tuesday, July 19 from 5pm-8 pm. 

This program is for swimmers who:

~ Are Victory Lakes Residents (non residents will be accepted if there is space available)
~ Can swim 5 meters unassisted (does not have to be an identifiable stroke) - Evaluation dates are avaialble on  May 1 @5:00 PM,  and May 15 @5:00 PM at the Central Park Aquatics Center.   There will also be evaluations the first week of practice.  Please email if try out is requested: [email protected]

Requirements: 
~ Are at least age 4 by June 1, 2022
~ Can separate from the parent
~ Are interested in becoming a Piranha some day

The program is NOT designed to replace beginner swim lessons. If the coaching staff deems during evaluations that a swimmer is not ready for the Guppy program, refunds will be reviewed up to the  full amount. 

If space is available, swimmers older than seven (7) years of age in the current swim year at the time of registration may participate with VLSC BOD and coach approval.

Guppy swimmers do not participate in our weekly summer swim meets, but will have an inter-squad "mini-meet" at the end of the season.  This meet is run with the help of members of the Piranhas Swim Team and is very similar to a regular team meet. However, the events include freestyle, backstroke, kickboard and fun relays (as time permits).  This year the Guppies will be conducted in the activity pool (Mushroom) that has a maximum depth of 4 feet.

PLEASE NOTE: This is registration for the Guppy Developmental Program of the Victory Lakes Piranhas ONLY. Registration for the Piranhas 2022 Summer Swim Team is closed.  A stand by list and those who missed swim team registration need to reach out directly to [email protected]    Do not register your swimmer for  both Piranhas and Guppies.   If uncertain sign up for Piranhas, have them try out and after a coach's assessment a refund will apply in order to migrate down your swimmer to Guppies.
