Sage Piranhas Summer Team - Registration

2019 Sage Piranhas Summer Swim Team Registration

Sign up for the 2019 Sage Piranha Summer Swim Team will take place on Tuesday, April 9th through Thursday, April 11th. After this time, if there are any spots left, people may sign up at the front desk during normal business hours.

Current members ONLY may sign up on Tuesday, April 9th. Group assignments will be available at the front desk. A group assignment may only be changed by Coach Ed and only after he has spoken with the Lead Coach of the swimmer's practice group.

Anyone may sign up on Wednesday, April 10th and Thursday, April 11th ( both current and new ). A coach will be available from 7-10 a.m. and from 6:30-8 p.m. on those two days to answer questions.

ALL new swimmers (non-current) to the Piranhas, regardless of their ability, must be evaluated by Coach Ed or another designated coach. Failure to do this may void your registration if you sign up without an evaluation. Coach Ed will be available for evaluations from 6:30 - 8 p.m. on April 8th, 9th, and 10th. It is best to contact Coach Ed at erichardson@ymcachicago.org to schedule an appointment. Coming in without an appointment will not guarantee an evaluation.

Our practice groups for the summer are:    Age Group ($300) , Intermediate ($350) , and Senior ($400).

Also, ALL new members will need to become members of US Swimming. Cost for this is $78. If a new member is already registered with US Swimming they will need to fill out transfer paperwork and send it in to Illinois Swimming Incorporated. See Coach Ed if you have questions.

Again, as with this past season, the families of swimmers will need to pay for their Championship Meets       ( Senior Champs, Y State, Age Group Champs, Nationals, etc.)  

Priority will also be given to our current members who exhibited high attendance at practices and who competed for and represented our team at the Championship Meets.

Practice schedule: From 4/29 through 6/5 -   AG   Monday through Friday 4:30 - 5:45 p.m. , INT    Monday through Friday   5:45 - 7:15 p.m. and Saturday 9:30 - 11 a.m. , SENIOR   Monday through Friday   7:15 - 9 p.m. and Saturday 7-9:30 a.m.

                                 From 6/6 through 7/27 -   AG  Monday through Friday 10-11:30 a.m. , INT   Monday through Friday  8:30-10 a.m. and Saturday  9:30-11 a.m. , From 6/3 through 7/27 - SENIOR   Monday through Friday 6-8:30 a.m. and Saturday 7-9:30 a.m. also sprint sessions Tuesday and Thursday 5:30-7 p.m. may be offered.

We will have only one home meet and that will be on Saturday, June 1st. This is a Y meet and will meet the one meet requirement needed in order to participate in Y State.

Any questions please contact Coach Ed at erichardson@ymcachicago.org.  

Coach Ed will be at the YMCA National Championships from Sunday. March 31st until Sunday, April 7th and won't be back in the office until Monday, April 8th. I will check my email daily while at Nationals.
