Swim Groups

The Palomar Piranhas offer training and practice groups for swimmers of most ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Piranhas to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. Practice swim groups for 8 & under will be based on ability. 

The eligibility of a participant to swim in a specific age group will be determined by his or her age on June 1 of the current year.

Age groups for competition are as follow:

  • Mini Piranhas:  4 & above
  • Girls and Boys:  6 & under
  • Girls and Boys:  7 – 8
  • Girls and Boys:  9 – 10
  • Girls and Boys:  11 – 12
  • Girls and Boys:  13 – 14
  • Girls and Boys:  15 – 18*

*If a senior in high school has turned 19 before June 1, he or she is eligible to swim the summer following his/her high school graduation. That is the only exception to the age rules.
