Welcome Piranhas!

Summer 2024 Info:

Welcome back Parkwood Piranhas Swim Team to the 2024 Swim Season! We are very excited to get back in the pool. We are in the largest division of the Durham Summer Swim League which consists of 17 teams in Durham, NC. If you are not on the swim-team mailing list and would like to be added, please email piranhas dot info at gmail.

1) Swim Team Registration

Complete the DSSL Waiver (required for all DSSL participants)
Do your Swimmingly Registration (you should have received an email with additional info about this)
The Scholarship Form is also available, if you need it.

2) Officials Trainings

In-person session – Date & time TBD (following spring DSSL meeting). This particular session is recommended for anyone new to officiating, as more beneficial than a remote session.

  • Wed, May 29, 7-9pm

Note: There will be no additional sessions beyond the four listed here.  As usual, individuals with a current USA Swimming certification for the role they wish to fill do not need to attend a training session, though please let us know if you are a USA Swimming-certified official so we can convey that information to DSSL.
