Joining the Cardinia Piranhas

Those interested in joining the club must complete a trial swim. 

A trial swim is to check swimming ability and determine whether there is a placement available for that ability level. We recommend a minimum of 50-100m of freestyle and backstroke with good technique and at least some ability in breaststroke and butterfly (ie have had swim lessons on these strokes). If you would like to have a trial please contact us on to organise a date.

Membership Fees 

The swim year consists of 12 months from July to June, the current annual fees are as follows:

Swimmer 8 years & under $258.90 (includes annual club membership and Swimming Victoria membership and insurance OR

2021/22 Swimmer 9 years & over $280.20 (includes annual club membership and Swimming Victoria membership and insurance) AND

Dry Member $25.76 (a parent must be registered as a dry member when a child under the age of 18 is enrolled to swim) 

Monthly swim fees are $70 per swimmer

This $70 covers coaching fees and allows the swimmer to participate in one or all of the weekly sessions (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) i.e. it is up to the swimmer how often they want to train but it is the same $70 fee for each swimmer. Invoices are sent monthly and fees are required to be paid by bank deposit (no cash accepted):

Account Name: Cardinia Piranhas
BSB: 633 000
A/C: 163 383 372
Please use the Invoice Number as ref.

Each swimmer is also required to pay pool entry via Aquatic Membership with Cardinia Life.  

Membership is to be organised via the front reception desk. Casual pay as you enter is not available.

We cap our swimmers.

Too many swimmers per lane inhibit the ability to train appropriately, so interest in the club may result in being placed on a waitlist.

Once approved to join the club a Membership Form will be sent via email

The membership form requires both parent and swimmer to read and understand the following:

Once the membership form and the child safe code of conduct are completed please email them to or hand them to any committee member. If you have any queries please see us at the pool during normal swimming session times.
