About House Swimming
This Piranha House Program is designed for children 6 years of age and old who may not be ready for Team or ready to commit to a full year with the Piranhas. 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. There will be one House group each session. Four sessions of House will be offered throughout the year, Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. Schedules are listed below.
Swimmers enrolled in Fall House will have priority for the Winter and the 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 Fall or Winter House swimming must participate in the Fall Evaluation Stroke Clinic and new swimmers who wish to be evaluated for Spring or Summer House must participate in the Spring Evaluation Stroke Clinic (please note there is no guarantee that the Spring Clinic will be run every year). Notification of placement will be via email no later than one day after completion of the clinic for the Fall and Spring. Registration for all House sessions must be done at the Y front desk.
Family Information Form for House swimming (required).
