Piranha Short Season Team

ANOTHER EXCTING PROGRAM BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE PIRANHA SWIM TEAM!!

We’re doing it again in 2022!!   The Piranhas have created a very successful seasonal competitive program for 13/Unders.  The Piranha Short Season Team is for those swimmers looking for a “taste” of competitive swimming but not the year long commitment.  These swimmers will be coached by the same awesome and experienced Piranha coaches, offered Piranha meets, regular weekly practices and all scheduled Piranha social events.  Swimmers will be eligible for the aforementioned activities held during the respective season in which they participate.  The Piranhas will be offering four Short Season programs throughout the year:  fall, winter, spring and summer.  Swimmers will be assigned (prior to registration via email from the coach) a team group based on age and ability and will swim as part of that team group;  three days per week only.  A practice schedule for the specific group will be provided before registration, also.

All Short Season swimmers must be members of the Darien YMCA.  Meet information can be found on the Meet Schedule Page.

Please note any new swimmer interested in this program MUST participate in a Stroke Clinic as an evaluation, or schedule a private evaluation with Jason Memont, Head Coach.  

See below for details about the upcoming 2022-23 season!!
