The Lake of the Pines (LOP) Piranhas are one of six teams participating in the Sierra Foothills Swim League (SFSL) established circa 1990. The SFSL successfully combines the spirit of recreation and competition through a series of dual meets -- pitting one team against another-- during the summer months. The swim season culminates in early August with a Championship meet where all six teams compete for SFSL crown.
The LOP Piranhas is a team of over 150 swimmers between the ages of 5 and 18. The swimmers compete in a series of age groups for boys and girls: 6 & under, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18.
The Piranhas practice season begins at the end of May at the LOP Swim Center in beautiful Lake of the Pines and goes through the first week in August.
Practices are held each weekday between 6:30PM and 9:00PM, depending on the age and ability of the swimmer.
