Piranha Coaching Staff and Upcoming Events
Hello Piranha Families —-
Swim season is approaching fast and I’ll be hitting you with a couple e-mails over the next few weeks.
First, I wanted to give you an update on our coaching staff for this year. As many of you may have heard, Coach Matt will be unable to return to coach the team this year. It was a very difficult decision for him since he has been a part of this team for well over a decade. His post-graduate plans provided him with an opportunity he could not pass up, which meant he could not commit to the entire season. He will be helping the new coaching staff and be around during the season so you will all have a chance to thank him for everything he has done for the team. We will all miss Matt and all he did for the team.
I’d like to take this opportunity to formally announce our new head coach! We were fortunate to be able to get John Ajamian as our head coach for this season. John is a former Piranha/MCSL swimmer and has experience as both a pre-team and assistant coach. John is very excited about the opportunity to work with all of the kids this summer.
We are thrilled to have our assistant coaches Zack Callis, Kaylor Stroot and Julia Tomlinson back again this year! Zack will be back as assistant coach this season while he also serves as our tie in to the pool as the pool manager. This gives John a lot of support as he learns the head coaching ropes. We already had our first coaches meeting and are excited to start the season.
Two other quick items.
We are in the process of locking up sponsors for this year. If you know of a business that would like to sponsor the team this year, please let me know so that the sponsorship team can contact them with sponsorship details.
The next e-mail you see from us will be regarding swim team registration, which will start May 1st. We plan to provide team shirts for the swimmers to wear to the meets this year and those details will be included in the registration process.
Look forward to seeing you all soon!
Mike, Rosie, Nikki, and Monica
