Hi MIA Homeowners,
The Piranhas Swim Team Board is working behind the scenes to get things up and running for our 2022 Piranha swim team season. We will begin to interview for coaching positions this week. We have a sizing kit coming to help people determine suit sizes. And apparel is being set up in the online portal.
However, thus far we have not received enough registered swimmers to be able to participate in the league swim meets. We are at risk of not being able to have a team this year. We love our Montevideo Piranhas and want to see it succeed but we need more swimmers and families and volunteers in order to make that happen.
We understand that this year many families may be looking forward to traveling and may be hesitant to add swim meets to their summer plans. We have been talking about how best to handle this. The league sets requirements for our swimmers to attend three or more of the regular season meets in order to qualify for Champs. We are required to host meets and staff meets with volunteers, so if we don’t have enough families there to sign up for the volunteer shifts, it is just an impossibility to move forward as part of the league.
We have set a date of April 1 to close registration. We will assess at that point if it is possible for us to continue with our swim team season. So if you are planning on swimming with us, please register by April 1. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’d love to hear from you. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
