JCC Piranhas Fall Swim Team

            SPONSOR THE 2017-18 PIRANHAS YOUTH SWIM TEAM            

Are You A Piranha?

The Piranhas Swim Team is a recreational swim team located at the Jewish Community Center of Austin. We strive to provide a fun and family-friendly atmosphere as we expose kids (ages 5-18) to the great sport of swimming. We also provide opportunities for kids to swim throughout the year in a positive environment, where they can make new friends and excel at their swimming skills. Our coaching philosophy is for everyone to have a great time, and provide a good balance between stroke work and conditioning.

Flex Your Fins

The team is open to children ages 5-10 years of age who can independently swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke without stopping. Swimmers ages 11-18 years of age should be familiar with all four competitive strokes.

A tryout needs to be conducted before the swimmer is registered.
