OAK PARK PIRANHAS
Planning for the 2021 swim team season in light of COVID-19 are still in process and registration will begin soon. Members will be updated with developments on the COVID-19 Updates page of our website, social media, and through email.
Oak Park Pool offers a competitive swim team for girls and boys from 6 & Under up through age 18. While our goal is to win each and every swim meet, our primary objectives are teamwork and sportsmanship - with an emphasis on cheering and having fun! During practices, we work on individual skills and will have a specific goal for each swimmer to accomplish that week. And we have a mentoring program between swimmers, so that each individual has someone who can support them in their growth. Our goal is to encourage a lifelong love of swimming while building memories and friendships!
In addition to practices and swim meets, we also have a variety of extra-curricular activities throughout the summer. We do a yearly lock-in at the pool, with everything from a silent synchronized swimming contest to making chocolate chip pancakes in the morning. We also take a team trip to Emerald Point Wet 'n Wild in Greensboro and have a "secret" parade at our last home meet.
