Swim Team

The Parkshore Piranhas are part of the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association, a 20+ team league in which teams of hundreds of swimmers ages 5 to 18 compete in dual meets. The season culminates with the City Swim Meet, where select swimmers compete in a league-wide championship. Last year, the Parkshore Piranhas jumped to 4th place overall. The swim team is equal parts dedication and fun!

SWIM MEET ABSENTEE FORM

 

Coach Nick Rindge and his fantastic team of Assistant Coaches are known throughout the league for their charisma and team spirit. The Parkshore Piranhas Swim Team is open to pool members ages 5 to 18. 

This page will be updated frequently, especially as we approach the 2022 swim season and obtain the latest information from the CCAA.   This page contains some – but not all – of the details you’ll need for the summer.  

Cost

Costs for the swim team are $100 for the first child, and $50 for each additional child from the same family.  To join the swim team, your family must also have a current family membership at Parkshore Pool.

Practice groups:

  • 4:15-5pm (Ages 5-8)
  • 7:45-8:45am or 5-6pm (Ages 9-12)
  • 7:45-8:45am or 6-7pm (Ages 13-18)

*Swimmers may bridge into a harder/easier group with permission from head coach Nick Rindge.

What to bring:

  • Goggles
  • Running shoes (…wait what?)
  • Any bathing suit
  • Towel
  • Water Bottle

New Swimmers: Parents of new 4:15 group swimmers should accompany the swimmer(s) onto the deck for the first practice. Nerves are common, especially in the water in April or May if the sun isn’t shining. 

Returning parents may drop their children off for practice but, as members, are always welcome inside. 

Reminder: Children must be 13+ years old to remain at the pool unaccompanied by a parent or guardian (older siblings under 18 do not count!)

What about gear? The STMs (swim team moms) and coaching staff will give you all the information you need to know during our kickoff meeting – typically within the first week of May.  As we get closer we will communicate the invite with you by email with the date and time.  During the meeting we will also address swim suit purchasing information, t-shirt info, swim meet schedules, 2022 city meet, and more.  During your swimmer signup, you will be asked for information about your swimmer:  age, suit size, and shirt size.  If you need to make any adjustments the meeting is a great time to let us know.

SWIM MEET SCHEDULE

The CCAA is putting together the schedule for the season. 

What is a swim meet like? Swim Meets are equal parts fun and competition. Typically, the entire team will swim against another entire team. Similar to last year against Northbridge and Shadowmoss, we may be splitting the team in half by age. Covid protocols are ever-changing and will vary slightly from pool to pool, but during home meets with the entire team, only one adult may represent a swimmer inside the pool area at any given time (with approved exceptions). We hope Covid is a thing of the past next season, but our precautions and protools will be regularly discussed, and the most up-to-date information will be passed to our swimmers and families.

Weather

If cancellation or changes of any of our scheduled events occur, the coaching staff will send an e-mail, text, and announce on our Facebook page. Inclement weather sometime occurs, and we will make every effort to announce any weather-related calls by 1pm for your planning. We always hope that the weather will pull through. 

Please note that we often start swimming early in the season which can be difficult for our youngest swimmers.  The water may still be chilly and your swimmer may be uncomfortable in the water if he or she is typically predisposed to shivering. We support your personal decision should you choose to sit earlier season practices out – it is always up to you.
