2015 Important Dates
Welcome back returning Gator families. In addition, greetings to all our prospective new swimmers.
We are in the process of updating the site and locking in our 2015 sponsors and lead volunteers.
Registration for 2015 is in March. Returning families can register on the 1st. New families in the 78750 and 78759 zip codes can register on the 15th. New families outside those zip codes can register on the 22nd. Spots will fill up fast for some age groups. I urge you to mark your calendars now and register as soon as possible. Registration for all swimmers closes on March 31.
New swimmer tryouts will be on the 4th and 11th of April. The coach’s requirements for new swimmers will be posted before registration begins.
Practices will begin on April 27. The first meet will be May 23. Champs will be the weekend of June 27/28.
The registration fee will remain at $140 per swimmer.
We’re looking forward to another great season.
New Swimmer Requirements
At tryouts, new swimmers must demonstrate to the coach the ability to swim one 25yd length of the pool using the freestyle stroke with the following components:
- arms coming out of the water (no doggie paddle),
- no touching the bottom of the pool or pulling along on the lane lines,
- head turning to the side to breathe, and
- swimmer needs no coaxing into or through the water once it's their turn to swim.
There will be no timing of swimmers at tryouts. The purpose of tryouts isn’t to get the fastest swimmers; it is to ensure that your child will be safe in the pool.
For the safety of all swimmers, we ask parents not to speak with coaches while kids are in the water trying out.
