G-A-T-O-R-S   G-A-T-O-R-S
The king of the swamp is the Gators
The Gators are the king of the swamp
With just one bite the others run in fright
Cause the Gators win the fight

Many swimmers—-ONE HEART
Many swimmers—-ONE HEART

Hurray for the Green Mountain Gators
They’re the best in the pool
With Just one bite the others run in fright
Cause the Gators always rule



Welcome to the 2013 GMST season. I hope you like the new fight song, I will make sure to teach it to all of you on Monday.

Coach Rich

Gator Nation,
The snow is gone and the summer swim season is fast approaching!
CoachesWe are happy to announce that our terrific Head Coach Rich Leeds is back for another season. We want to thank our alumni swimmers and coaches, Josh Petersen and Shelby Denney, for their many years of dedicated service to the team and wish them well as they move on with their lives and careers in health and education. We have been fortunate to hire Taylor Bleidt and Jaime Stevens who are very accomplished swimmers and coaches from great programs to carry our team forward (their bio’s will be posted in the SWAMP). In addition, we have two upper division swimmers, Brian Long and Ethan Schick, that will help them with the lower division practices. So, we will have four coaches working the 10-12 and 9 & under practices. We also plan to offer stroke clinics this year (more on that in a future update).

Registration forms can be found in the SWAMP. These can be mailed to the address listed on the form, brought to the final clinic on Sunday, or to the pool once we begin practices. There are 3 forms (registration, release of liability & medical history). Forms and fees must be received by Thursday May 30th to compete in the first dual meet on June 1st. Thursday June 6th is the last day to register and pay for the summer swim season.

Because our pool is being renovated, the first week of after school practices will be held at the Morse Park pool at 8180 W. 20th Ave. (Green Mtn. Rec. and Carmody were not available). Go north on Kipling, east on 20th to Carr and you are there. Practice times are as follows: 9 & unders 4:30-5:30 pm, 10-12 year olds 5:30-6:30 pm, and 13-18 year olds 6:30-8:00 pm. Since we have to pay for pool time, we encourage all Gators to attend as many practices as possible. We plan to return to our newly painted pool the following week. Future practice times will be posted in the SWAMP.
The first Intrasquad meet and parent meeting
will be held Wednesday May 29th. The goal of the intrasquad is to introduce new Gators to racing and to obtain entry times for the first meet on June 1st. The full meet schedule with warmup times will be posted in the SWAMP.

Suit fittings will take place at the Green Mtn. Rec Center this Sunday, May 19th, between 4:30 and 7:00 pm. If your swimmer needs to try on a suit, please make sure they are dry! We should have the suits 2 weeks after the order is placed.We look forward to another great summer of conditioning, competition, and fun.
Go Gators!
