A great way for kids and teens to make friends, have fun and enjoy a little bit of friendly competition. We introduce younger swimmers to the team environment and teach all four competitive strokes while more experienced swimmers develop their technique and endurance level.

All swimmers develop the values of goal-setting, teamwork, good sportsmanship and hard work.

The YMCA of the Suncoast Piranhas (PYP) is a year round competitive swim program designed to meet the needs of every swimmer! Whether you're looking for a competitive team that emphasizes stroke, technique and strength training or a means of personal exercise, PYP is your best fit! PYP works to build outstanding people and strong swimmers through constant attention to teaching and training.

We invite you to our evaluations or ask an aquatics director at one of our locations for additional information. Join in on the fun and success of PYP swimming! 

Program structure and competitive level varies by YMCA location.
