Welcome to the HRST Piranhas, a recreational, summer swim team (made up of two clubs – Hollow Rock and Stoneridge/Sedgefield) that competes in the Chapel Hill Summer Swim League.
The Piranha Swim Team includes 125+ swimmers (ages 5 – 18) and a staff of veteran coaches & junior coaches, many of whom grew up with our team.
Our team’s goal is to provide a safe and fun learning environment where young swimmers of all abilities can build skills, improve fitness, make friends and enjoy being on a co-ed, multi-age team. We use every opportunity to have older swimmers connect to the younger kids, and we’re growing our junior coaching program to facilitate those relationships.
During our 9-week schedule, we offer daily practice Monday – Friday during the morning and the afternoon at Hollow Rock’s lap pool for Hollow Rock and Stoneridge members.

Spring 2018 Update
Attention Hollow Rock Families!
The Piranha Summer Swim Team is gearing up for another fun season! This is a great activity if you would like your kids to meet lots of other kids at Hollow Rock, get better at swimming, and improve their fitness. Your child does not have to be a great swimmer to be on the team and we encourage our swimmers to cheer for and support their team members at all levels! Last year we had over 130 kids ages 5-18 on the team. We would love for your children to join us this year!
We are still finalizing some of the details for this upcoming season and plan to have everything set before our online registration starts on April 1. In the meantime, please feel free to check out our website www.hollowrockswimteam.org to get to know our team and our schedule for this year.
Swim team season runs from May 14, our first practice, until July 22 our End of Season Banquet. During this time we will have daily practices Monday through Friday. Practices will be in the afternoon, and we will add a morning practice once school is out. We generally have one meet per week either on a Wednesday evening or Saturday morning competing against another team from our league.
We will have 2 in person registration days where you can meet some of the parent volunteers involved with the team, ask questions, and purchase team suits (not required) and goggles. Both events will be held in the clubhouse.
Wednesday, April 11 5:30-7:30pm
Saturday, April 21 4:30-6:00pm
We look forward to seeing all of our returning swimmers and lots of new faces this summer!
Online registration can be found here and will open in early March.
