House Swimming 2024

About House Swimming

The Piranha House Program is designed for children 6 years of age and older who may not be ready for the competitive team.  House Swimmers must have advanced basic swimming skills, be able to complete at least 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke without assistance, have a legal breaststroke kick, complete an in-water somersault and must have familiarity with butterfly.  Most House kids have at least 3 legal strokes.  The goal of the group will be to learn drills and proper technique for all four competitive strokes, and the emphasis during practice will be on fun and learning. 

Swimmers enrolled in Fall House will have priority for the Winter  and Winter House will have priority for the Spring and so on. Returning House swimmers should register on their respective registration date or run the risk of losing their spot. Once a session’s respective registration is complete, House will be open to new swimmers. There is limited space in all our House programs.

In a given year, a swimmer who participated in the Spring and/or Summer House session does not have to be evaluated for THAT YEAR’S Fall or Winter House session.  All other new swimmers who wish to be evaluated for House swimming must participate in one of the Evaluation Stroke Clinics as an evaluation, or request a private evaluation by contacting the Piranha office:  swimadmin@darien-ymca.org or jmemont@darien-ymca.org.

NO Y ONLINE REGISTRATION IS AVAIALABLE FOR HOUSE SWIMMING.
