YWNC Swim Team Programs The YWNC Piranhas are a year round YMCA competitive swim team. We are sanctioned by the YMCA and USA Swimming. This means that YWNC Piranha swimmers compete in both YMCA and USA competitions. We have found this provides our swimmers the opportunity to compete at the best level for their abilities. The YMCA provides the team with structure based on the Y mission and four core values. The Piranhas practice group structure is designed by the coaches to help all swimmers to develop and be challenged no matter what their ability may be. There is a place for every ability level of swimmer to be challenged and flourish. In addition to the full team program, the Piranhas also offer pre-team Pips and masters programs. The PIPs (Piranhas in Progress) group is for 4-6 year olds. It meets two days a week, M+W, for 45 minutes, in two10 week sessions. This program runs 7/ Oct-11/Dec and 20/Jan-26/Mar at Reuter Y. Class is limited to 10. A swimming assessment is a pre-requisite for entry. The Masters program offers training sessions at our Downtown, Reuter and Hendersonville locations. This group is made up of adults with a variety of swimming backgrounds who are seeking a structured swimming environment with an experienced coach.
