Piranhas and Piranha Parents
We are once again preparing our club entry for the forthcoming COPS Grand Prix Series, and we are hoping that all our young swimmers will sign up for this fantastic gala series at the Regional pool Peterborough.
The entry is open to all 8 to 12yr olds and comprises 4 licensed galas with swimmers accumulating points across all four strokes. With age group medals being awarded at the final gala.
