All swimmers must be between the age of 5 - 18 by May 1, 2014 to be eligible to swim on the Gators swim team.
The registration fee for swimmers ages 5-14 years old is $140.00, and $75.00 for swimmers 15-18 years old.
All new swimmers must attend one of the two tryouts in order to be eligible to swim on Gators.
Tryout requirements are:
All swimmers must be able to complete a lap of the pool without stopping or going to the side. The stroke must be mostly intact, meaning face has to be in the water at all times except when breathing, their arms should be able to reach out of the water in circles in front of them and their feet are kicking.
The Gators swim team coach will determine whether a swimmer makes the team or not. If their is any disagreement by the family, a petition needs to be sent by the family to the Board of Directors who will make the final decision prior to the start of the first practice.
Swimmers have one opportunity to tryout for the Gators swim team at one of the following times. Saturday, April 5, 2014, 3:00-4:30pm or Saturday, April 12, 2014, 8:00-9:30am at Great Hills Pool.
Parents, please read the Gator's Code of Conduct.
We are excited to offer a new 2014 Gator team suit. While a 2014 team suit is not mandatory, we encourage everyone to take advantage of purchasing one. 2014 team suits will cost $53.00 for girls and $35.00 for boys. They can be purchased anytime at Lane 4 on Burnet/183. Lane 4 will also be selling them the first week of practice.
