The Palomar Piranhas Need YOU!
The Palomar Piranhas invited kids ages 4 through 18 to become a part of the 2017 summer swim team! This volunteer-run team provides a fun, competitive environment for summer swimmers. We promote healthy competition, sportsmanship and teamwork. Palomar swimmers will gain lifelong friendships and memories as well as a love of swimming. Any child who lives in Palomar Hills neighborhood and can swim the length of the pool (25 yards) is encouraged to sign up regardless of age, ability, skill or experience.
Registration is now open to Palomar residents and returning swimmers. Registration will remain open only until we reach our maximum capacity of 150 swimmers (which we have reached the past several years), so register today. All registration will be done online this year at www.palomarswimteam.com. Please note that the registration system will NOT work on phones or tablets.
Children ages 4-6 who are not quite ready for the regular swim team can sign up for our Mini Piranhas program. Children will meet twice weekly for lessons on basic swimming skills. There is no requirement for Mini Piranhas to be able to swim the length of the pool or to compete in meets. Mini Piranhas will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays either in the morning or evening. You must choose one upon registration, and times are not interchangeable. There are 20 morning spots and 8 evening spots.
Our head coach this year is Collier Witt, a familiar face to returning swimmers. Collier has been with the Palomar Piranhas since he was five years old – first as a swimmer and then as an assistant coach for the past several years – and will now assume the responsiblities of head coach. We are excited to welcome Collier to his new role!
The Piranhas are a member of the Man-O-War Swim Conference. Our season begins in late May and runs through mid-July. Practices are offered five days a week , with one swim meet a week held on Wednesday evenings and a championship meet held in July.
