Piranha's Practice Groups

If fall tryouts have already taken place, please read through the following descriptions and then come to the practice your swimmer would most fit in to do a tryout. Your swimmer will swim that practice as their tryout and if they make it the coach will let you know. If they do not make it then the coach will make recommendations, such as continuing swim lessons. You may email the coach or just show up to that practice.

If you have not done so already, go back to the general "Our Team" tab and read through the very important information listed there.
