Thank you for your interest in our USA Swimming Club, Piranhas Aquatic Club (PAC). Our club formatted like other USA swim clubs in our region, but we are UNIQUE in our own way! We are a competitive swim club and will train swimmers to meet the highest levels. In addition to our team motto of Dream It, Believe It, Achieve It, our most important core vale is The Swimmer Comes First.  This is intended to mean that the physical and emotional development and well-being of the swimmer is our FIRST PRIORITY over meet results, time standards, or club operational/financial objectives.  Our promise to you is that we will deliver programs that challenge your swimmer, develop their form and technique, while at the same time nurturing their character development and having FUN. In a world where competitiveness can overshadow teamwork and humbleness, we want our members to understand the importance of hard work, dedication, and commitment to the individual and the team. Ultimately, we want our swimmers to develop a life-long love and appreciation for the sport.

If you are new to the Piranhas, please see the swim groups descriptions to help determine your swimmer(s) group.  Please keep in mind, it is better to start off learning at a slower pace to achieve maximum benefit of the technical components of the different strokes.  All swimmers will be assessed and assured they are in the correct group the first few nights of practice. For questions not answered on the page, please email Coach Brenda at [email protected]

The practice groups are organized by age and ability as follows. Exceptions can be made at the Head Coach’s discretion. All groups will include organized training, workout preparation, conditioning, dryland training while weather allows, and stroke instruction.

  • Blue - Generally, 8*-12 years old; solid technical foundation; beginning to understand racing strategy; focuses on details. *8-year-olds must have knowledge of all 4 strokes, know how to flip turn, and be comfortable swimming 50- and 100-yard training sets at practice.

Registration Details

Registration will open on August 8, 2022 ON THE PAC website (not the EGP website). Click the registration button on the PAC home page.

The registration process will require you to enter “Account Holder” and “Member” information.  This is a separate website from the Elk Grove Piranhas Swim Team, so you will need to set up a new account through this website. For those who are previous PAC members, we have temporarily activated your account, so your registration process is easier.  If you do not register for September, your account will be deactivated.

  • Account Holder = usually parent or guardian of minor swimmer or the registering master swimmer. The account holder and any other designated emails will receive all team communications.
  • Member = swimmer (age group or Master) who will participate in our program. Emails can be added for members to receive team communication. Click “Add Member” for each additional member under the account holder.

You will be prompted to select the swim group for each member.  For new swimmers (i.e., not part of our current Piranha family) please use the group definitions as a guide and select the group that best fits your swimmer.  Swimmers will be assessed on the first practice and changes will be made if a swimmer is registered in the wrong group based on their age and ability.

All fees and dues will be collected through our online system and no checks or cash will be allowed.  

At the time of registration, you will be asked to review and check that you will comply with the following.  All documents are available on our website:
