Swim Buddies

The Green Mountain Gator’s have a long-standing tradition of matching younger swimmers with an older ‘buddy.’ This pairing is meant to help swimmers connect across age groups and gives younger swimmers someone to help them navigate swim meets. While the full list of pairings is still a work in progress, all 8 & under swimmers competing in Saturday’s (06/03) swim meet have been assigned an older buddy. If you are an 8 & under swimmer competing in this weekend’s meet, please talk to Coach Kayli to get the name of your older buddy!

Get Ready for It!

Summer season is in full-swing starting the week of 5/29. Please see below for details on practice times and events.

– Tuesday 5/30: Morning practices start @ GMSC
– Wednesday 5/31: Parent Meeting / Tie-Dye & Ice Cream Party
– Saturday 6/3: Dual Meet @ Wheatridge

Practice Times have been finalized based on the number of registered swimmers in each age group. (As a reminder, we only have a 5-lane pool and have to do our best to not overcrowd any age group)
13 and older: 6:30am-8:00am
10-12 years: 8:00-9:00am
9 and under: 9:00-10:ooam*

*Please note: Our preference is for 9 year olds to practice at the 9:00am slot. if you have a 9 year old that needs to practice in the earlier timeslot, please speak to Coach Ethan or Coach Kayli for permission to move practices. We have a VERY BIG team this year and pool space is at a premium.

Parent Meeting / Tie-Dye & Ice Cream Party
Wednesday 5/31 @ 5:30pm-7:00pm @ GMSC
This is a non-swimming event. We will have white Gator t-shirts and tank tops to sale that you can tie-dye or you are welcome to bring your own. Parents/kids/siblings are all welcome to get in the Gator spirit and tie-dye their summer team gear. Parent Meeting will start at 6:15pm to give a run-down of the season, volunteer expectations and answer any questions you might have.

Our First Dual Meet!
Saturday 6/3 at Wheatridge (Anderson Pool)
warm up at 6:30am
Coaches will help the kids sign up for this event during practice.
*Check the sidebar of the blog each week in the “Next Event” section. You will find each event, location, start times, etc. The full schedule can also be found on our Events tab on the website.


All- It looks like it might rain this afternoon. We will have practice unless there is lightening (which Golden will clear the pool immediately and hold all practices for 30 minutes). We obviously won’t know until we are at practice. If you and your kids are up for a possibly fun rain day of swimming, meet us at Splash. If you can’t make it, we understand. We are a go until the weather betrays us.
