Swimmers of the Week are chosen by the coaching staff each week. This honor can be awarded for many different accomplishments and achievements: good attendance, hard work, respect toward the coaching staff and other swimmers, good sportsmanship, supporting teammates, cheering, etc. Anyone can earn an award.


The winners are posted poolside during the week in which the award was earned, and a Breaking News item will be posted when they are updated here.

Swim to the T.O.P.

Swim to the T.O.P. is an incentive program for our Piranhas swimmers. Swimmers are able to obtain three different levels of achievement by meeting the time standard for each individual event. Once each time standard is met, swimmers will be rewarded with a special T.O.P. tag.


Every swimmer has the opportunity to earn the T.O.P. tags at every swim meet. Click on the link below to see details and time standards.
