GREAT things happen when the Parklawn Piranhas swim team parents and community supporters get involved! Like the Piranha Power Boosters Club. Since its founding in 2015, the Boosters have raised money to cover a host of annual swim team expenses such as Clerk of Course benches, lane lines and wheel, a new starter, team swim caps, team T-shirts, dryland mats, kickboards, and more.
