The Piranhas offer Dry Land training to all Training Groups Junior II and above. The goal of the Piranha Dry Land program for all Training Groups is general fitness, body awareness, flexibility and core strength. As Swimmers progress to the Junior I and Senior Training Groups dry land training frequency increases and more strength training is added. For the Junior II training group at least one session per week is taught by a Y Fitness instructor and at least two per week for the Junior I and Senior groups.
Please note that dry lands training is a privilege and all swimmers are expected to behave properly, not only to exhibit good manners but also in the name of safety. Also, swimmers must show up dressed appropriately, i.e t-shirt, shorts or sweats and most importantly, athletic footwear. Swimmers participating in on-deck dry lands just need to show up in their bathing suits.
Please note that swimmers who attend dry lands will also be expected to attend swim practice on the day dry lands is offered.
A schedule for these sessions are posted on the practice schedule page along with the swim practice schedule.
