The Gator coaches and board members are excited to implement a new award for swimmer of the week. This swimmer recognition will begin next week.
During the summer swim season the coaches will be recognizing one female and one male swimmer each week. Swimmers can be chosen from any age group. Upon being chosen for the swimmer of the week the swimmer will be recognized on the blog and on the bulletin board at the swimming pool as well as receiving a Dairy Queen gift card.
