The Plano Aquaducks and the Plano Piranhas are the recreational swim teams of the City of Plano Parks and Recreation Department and are affiliated with the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation.
The Aquaducks and Piranhas swim 5 days a week during the summer and also have options for swimming in the fall, winter and spring. The Aquaducks practice at the Oak Point Recreation Center and the Piranhas practice at the Tom Muehlenbeck Center. Although we have experienced tremendous growth, we continue to maintain a family-like atmosphere and are committed to helping kids have fun and learn how to become better swimmers.
The teams have the most swimmers during the summer, with registration beginning in April. Throughout the summer there are optional swim meets every Saturday (about 30 to 45 minutes away), and swimmers have a chance to compete at the TAAF Games of Texas by qualifying at the regional swim meet.
The Aquaducks and Piranhas have recently expanded to swimming in the fall, winter and spring. In the fall we swim and compete in the Winter Games of Texas, and in the winter and spring we offer stroke clinics to help swimmers get their strokes up to par before the summer starts. The Piranhas now offer fall and spring practices. Swimmers choose one or more practice days Monday – Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday. It’s a great way to keep swimming throughout the year!
The coaches love swimming and have a high level of expertise. They want the swimmers to learn to swim better and enjoy the great sport of swimming.
