Piranha Swimming
Summer Pre-team

Welcome to Piranha Swimming’s Pre-Team Program.The goal of this program is to get your swimmer onto the team. If your child has had swim lessons or just did a tryout and were not quite ready to be on the team, this program will improve their skills so they can get on the team. 

Session 1:    First two weeks of the month (if successful your swimmer may join the team)
Session 2:   Last two weeks of the month (after successful completion you may join the team or Fall Promotional team)

The will be eight 30-minute meetings per session Monday-Thursdays. Pre-team classes will focus on basic skills development, with Session 1 adding in specific work on freestyle and backstroke, Session 2 breaststroke and butterfly. We recommend both Sessions so your swimmer gets a well-rounded experience!

  • All strokes, including starts and turns
  • Long Axis Strokes (LA) - Freestyle and Backstroke- Session 1. 
  • Short Axis Strokes (SA) - Breaststroke and Butterfly-Session 2.

During the Class/Lesson

Please arrive on time to each lesson so that your swimmer does not miss review or warm ups. If you arrive early please supervise your children and help them abide by pool rules. When your child is in the water please sit in designated Parent-Spectator areas. This allows you to observe and it allows the child to focus on the coach. We keep the water at 81 degrees and we try to keep everyone warm and engaged. If a child is shivering or turning blue, the coach may opt to remove the child from that day’s lesson. Lessons are taught rain or shine. We only cancel for electrical storms.

More Tips

  1. Use the restroom before class to minimize class interruption. Eat a light meal before class.
  2. Secure long hair away from child’s face. We recommend using a swim cap.
  3. Apply waterproof sunscreen before class
  4. Keep children home if they are sick and possibly contagious.
