Thank you for your interest in joining the Five Parks Piranhas Swim Team. Here is some information that you will need to know.
NEW FOR 2018 – We are in the process of switching to an entirely new team management system that will give our swimmers access to loads of information and time-saving features. That being said, our registration process has been slightly delayed during the transition. We will announce official dates as soon as they are live. For now, assume it’ll be in the next week or so.
Links to the Registration Form will appear on this page when they are live this month.
1) Registration has two phases.
The First Phase (Pre-Registration) is open to residents in the Village of Five parks neighborhood as well as returning swimmers. The second phase (Public Registration) is open to all swimmers from Five Parks as well as all of our surrounding neighborhoods.
- Phase One (Residents & Returning) starts Mid-March and will be open for one week.
- Phase Two (All Swimmers) will open Late-March and will close on April 20.
Please note: The Team WILL fill up. Every year we have a large waiting list of swimmers. If you are seriously interested in joining the team, please be sure to register as soon as you are able to. We must limit the size of the team to ensure great coaching and conditions for our swimmers.
Residents & Returning Rules: You must be paying HOA fee’s to the Village of Five Parks to be considered a resident. Returning swimmers are returning from a previous summer team experience. Clinics and Workshops do not count toward returning swimmer status. If you did not fulfill your 15-hour volunteer requirement the previous year, you do not qualify for Returning status.
2) Join our Email List to keep updated.
If you are not a returning member of our team, we would suggest that you join our email list to ensure you receive notifications about registration, etc. If you would like to join our list, you may do so here.
3) Do we require tryouts?
We do not require tryouts. Any swimmer may participate on the team as long as they can swim at least one length of the pool without stopping.
4) How do I register?
When your registration period is here, visit our website and the registration forms will be available to you. We accept all registrations online.
5) When do practices start?
We will start practice the week before school is out in the evenings and then in the mornings once school ends. Check the calendar for official dates and times.
6) What is the commitment?
We do not have a specific commitment to participate but we do require swimmers to swim in at least two meets to get an award at the end of the season. We also require parents/guardians to volunteer a certain number of hours (15) during the season as well. Practices are 5 days a week and your child is welcome to as many as he/she is able to attend.
7) How many meets are there?
Meets will take place almost every weekend (minus 4th of July) through mid-July. You can see the schedule here.
8) How much does it cost?
The fee to join the team is $200 per swimmer for the entire summer.
