Coach Colin Hardy began developing his coaching approach from a unique vantage point: in his high school pool.
“I noticed that coaches paid attention to only the best, strongest swimmers,” said Colin. “That made me want to design a program where every swimmer feels like part of the team.”
Coach Hardy’s current Piranhas team includes middle school and high school students, as well as Masters swimmers in their twenties, forties, and fifties. A few team members are open-water swimmers, an experience vastly different from traditional in-pool swim meets. Working with Coach Hardy has helped them improve their swim times and form.
