Practice Times:We may have to shift the age groups around for practice times based on the number of swimmers in each age group. We want your swimmer to have the best experience possible. Please do your best to bring your swimmer at the time allotted for their age group. STAY TUNED FOR ANY CHANGES.
Registration: If you have not registered for team yet, you need to do it ASAP. All swimmers must be registered and in our computer system before they can race in a meet. The absolute last day cutoff is Thursday, May 30th. Please register before then if possible. We need time to import your swimmers into our system and do 20 things behind the scenes to make them eligible. Thanks!!
Intrasquad Meet: This is our first meet at the pool and it is against our team only. The times your swimmer receives are qualifying times for League and State.
Tie-Dye /Ice cream Social / Parent Meeting: Please bring a white colored item (shirt, socks, towel, pillow case, etc) to tie-dye in team colors or you can purchase a gator shirt / tank top to tie dye so your swimmers can represent the team all season. Event starts at 5pm / Ice Cream at 5:30 pm and Parent Meeting at 6:00 pm. All swim team families are welcome.
Parent Volunteers: The Gator team is one of the last remaining teams that does not charge you $$ or keep meticulous notes on volunteer hours per family. We would really love to keep it that way!!! All families are expected to volunteer at the meets. If you don’t know how to do something, don’t worry. It’s both simple and the veteran Gators will show you how to do it! There is a sign up genius created for every event this season. Please sign up.
Night Practices: Night practices will be held on Tuesdays / Thursdays from 8:00pm – 9:00pm starting on 6/4. These practices are for upper division swimmers (13 years and older) or for younger swimmers at the discretion of the coach. If your swimmer is younger than 13, you will need to get approval from Coach Ben to attend the night sessions. ** All night sessions will be dependent on the weather and attendance. ** Please contact Coach Ben if you have any questions.
Team Swim Suits: If you would like to get a team suit for your swimmer (not required) you should order it this week at the latest. They do take 1-2 weeks to get delivered and our swim season is only 10 weeks in total.
