2010 FSA Division II League Champions

Welcome to the 2016 Gator Season!


Spring Swim Clinic practice time changes

We are excited for our Spring Clinic to begin this Sunday.  We have made a few changes to the age groups and their practice times to help balance out the number of swimmers per lane.  Please see the changes below.
If your child was born in or after 2007 they will attend the 5:00-6:00pm session
If your child was born in or before 2006 they will attend the 6:00-7:00pm session

We understand that there are some siblings that this change may affect.  If it is easier to bring both of them to the same session please have them attend the session of the younger sibling.

Also if your swimmer is in the water from 6:00-7:00pm please remind them to get in and out of the locker room as quickly as possible so the Rec Center can close in a timely manner.

Please plan on bringing your payment of $90 per swimmer to the first swim clinic (thank you!)


Swim meet sign-up survey

We would like your input about how swimmers sign-up for swim meets.  We have created a survey for parents to complete to share their thought on what the best way for swimmers to pick their events is.  This is for families who have been swimming with the Gators for 2+ years as we are comparing the different ways it was done in the past.  Please share your thoughts so we can make improvements for the 2017 summer swim season.
Please complete the swim meet sign-up survey
Thanks for your time as we appreciate your input

Open board positions

Do your kids love summer swim team? Would you like to become more involved in the swim team family? Think about joining the swim team board. We would love to have you as part of our board.  Speaking from personal experience (this is Jennifer) there is no swim team background needed.

We currently have an open board position and two more available after this summer (Jennifer and Dave will be leaving after the 2017 summer season). This is a wonderful opportunity to become involved and understand how all the parts of the swim team work. The job responsibilities are flexible and we are confident there will be a task that you can help with and enjoy doing.

Please email gmstgators@aol.com if you would consider joining the board this year and/or shadowing for the next year. We can discuss the roles you are interested in and what responsibilities would work best for you.  If you are planning on possibly joining the board after this summer we would welcome you to shadow some this summer so you can gain some knowledge of these positions.  We would love to have your support.

Thank you for considering volunteering and we look forward to working with new board members this summer.

Happy Holidays

It is hard to think it is now December. It seems just like last weeks ago we were swimming outside. We hope all the Gator families had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are getting ready for Christmas.

I want to remind families participating in the Sunday night swim clinics that the last clinic will be December 11th.
We will have the Spring clinic registration posted at the beginning of January. We hope to see some familiar faces in the pool preparing for summer.

Do you need an idea for Christmas presents? You can visit the swim outlet link to purchase Gator apparel.  Please follow this link to start shopping.

Thank you all for your continued support
We wish all of you and your families Happy Holidays

Attention Sunday night swim clinic swimmers:
Please remember there is NO swim clinic the next two Sundays due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
We wish all of the Gator families a thankful holiday. We are thankful for our wonderful swim families.
