PIRANHAS CELEBRATE ANOTHER GREAT SEASON
By Coach Stephanie Mosley
The 2018 Plaza Oaks Swim Team completed another successful summer swim season.
The Plaza Oaks Swim Team is a part of the Memorial Spring Branch Swim Conference (MSBSC), which comprises 12 neighborhood swim teams. The regular season included dual meet victories over Spring Branch, Memorial Forest, Wilchester, and Memorial Bend.
The 2018 POC swim team consisted of 180 swimmers spanning from ages 4-18. Thirty-three of these swimmers were between the ages 13-18, which is an astounding number of older kids who continue to be a vital part of the Plaza Oaks community each summer. Of these 33 older swimmers, 30 of them have been Piranhas since being in the 6 and under age group.
Being a part of the Plaza Oaks Swim Team truly means being a "Piranha for Life"! The camaraderie displayed between swimmers of all ages is one of the most amazing things to see at Plaza Oaks. The Piranhas welcomed 15 half-lappers new to swim team this year, to give us a combined total of 52 swimmers in the 6 and under age group.
The success of the Plaza Oaks Swim Team is largely due to the many volunteers who step up each summer. A special thanks to all the parents that helped make practices, time trials, meets, and the team party run so smoothly.
We had many family and business sponsors for which we are grateful.
Swim team is open for all children ages 4-18 as of May 1, 2019. The goal of MSBSC is to provide fun and fair competition for all involved. This is not a U.S.A. swim league. For more league information, please visit www.msbsc.org.
Registration will be done strictly online. You will be receiving an email from the team coordinator inviting you to register online through the new system.
We encourage you to forward the email to friends or family who were not on the team last year and would like to join as we are always looking for new Piranhas to join our team.
If you would like to sign up now, please visit Plaza Oaks Piranhas Swim Team website and click “Begin Registration” to get started.
To finalize your registration, please come to Registration Day on April 7 from 1-3 PM to join the pool, get swimsuits and drop off your check.
If you cannot make it that day, A Gleam Swimwear will be back to sell swimsuits.
You can drop off the check to Jennifer Hyland at 815 St. Francis Lane or mail it to Plaza Oaks Club, PO BOX 19344, Houston, TX 77224.
Piranha parent volunteer sign ups will occur at a later date after registration is complete. Parents are required to sign up for at least 2 jobs per swimmer. The sign ups will be announced and opened to all current members after registration day.
In order to swim on the swim team, you must be a pool member in good standing and have registered and paid in full. Ages are based on May 1st, 2018.
Note: You are not eligible to swim in this league if you have trained on or competed for a USA swim team after March 10, 2019.
