Guppy Developmental Swim Program 2021
Registration for Guppies will open May 17th.
Coach Hanna DeVarona will be the lead instructor.
In addition to our competitive swim program, the Victory Lakes Piranhas offer the Guppy Developmental Swim Program. The registration fee is $120 and includes guppy practice 3 times per week, a t shirt and a guppy meet at the end of the session. Guppies practices run from June 14 through July 15 from 11-11:30 and 11:30-12pm Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Guppy meet will be held on Tuesday, July 13, in the evening.
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 TBD
~ Are at least age 5 by September 30, 2021 (No exceptions!)
~ 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, the Piranhas will issue a full refund of the registration fee.
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 do typically 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).
