We bring people together who share a common interest in summer swimming. The Poolesville Piranhas Swim Team is a great way for kids to enjoy summer at the pool! We are a community swim team and member of the Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL).
Registration for the summer 2019 season is now open!

Piranhas team members participate in swim meets and various social activities throughout the summer such as pep rallies, team breakfasts, and more. Swimmers practice in the pool with dedicated coaches who help them learn/improve their strokes and get ready for competition.
Poolesville's small town values and inviting character are strong influences on our team. We aim to cultivate a postive family environment where children can learn good sportsmanship, develop better aquatic skills, build their confidence in and out of the pool, and forge long-lasting friendships across our community.
We welcome all children up to 18 years old who can swim at least 1 length of the pool unassisted. Children are assessed by the coach during the first week of swim practices. They must be registered (see link above) before they can practice with the Piranhas.
Swimmers compete in a series of swim meets divided into 2 levels of competition. The advanced "A" meets are comprised of a limited number of swimmers per team, while the "B" meets are open to any swimmer not competing in the "A" meets. We have a full season of "A" meets on Saturday mornings and "B" meets on Wednesday evenings through June and July, so every swimmer has the opportunity to compete in at least 1 meet per week. The team practices on weekday mornings (once school is out), with evening practices available only for those who can't attend in the morning.
