The Piranhas Swim Club of Fort Saskatchewan is a competitive swim club committed to providing an opportunity in a friendly environment for children who wish to pursue improved physical fitness, to sharpen their swimming skills, to experience competing in local Region C swim meets, Regionals and the Alberta Summer Swimming Provincials. Our club is primarily geared to children, ages 4-18. We believe in the concept of setting and realizing the personal goals of each individual swimmer, but we also strongly incorporate a team spirit of positive attitudes, respect and responsibility. Our club values involvement in all club activities including: training, competition, social events and fundraising. All our club members, volunteers and coaching staff, as outlined in our Code of Conduct, supports these values.
2016 Team has 2 Minnows Squads, a full roster of new and returning Piranhas & we are thrilled to be welcoming some Fort McMurray Swimmers to join us this season!
