The Lake of the Pines (LOP) Piranhas are one of six teams participating in the Sierra Foothills Swim League (SFSL) established circa 1990. The SFSL successfully combines the spirit of recreation and competition through a series of dual meets -- pitting one team against another-- during the summer months. The swim season culminates with a Championship meet ("Champs") where all six teams compete for SFSL Trophy.

The team is made up of about 100 swimmers, both LOP residents and a few non-residents, between the ages of 5 and 18.  The registration period is in Spring, usually late March or early April.  Practices usually begin the first week after Memorial Day weekend and are held between the hours of 6:30pm and 9:00pm.  Practice times/length (30 - 45 minutes) will vary depending on the age and ability of the swimmer.
