We need to split-up our Swim and Dive Team's Meet the Coaches/Parent Meetings:
Dive Team Meeting will now be at 7pm on Monday, June 1st.
Swim Team Meeting will now be at 7:30pm on Monday, June 1st
Families with a child or children swimming or diving are invited to attend this event. Parents will have the opportunity to learn the many volunteer positions and sign up early. The coaching staff will be introduced and an overview of the swim and dive program will be provided. Question and Answer session and a chance to meet and reconnect with the Gator families, swimmers and divers! You will be able to learn about the sign up process for swim meets and the parent volunteer positions available at this time.

We have secured dive coaches for the season!! So excited that Jessica Pfeffer accepted the position to be our head coach and build our diving program! She will be joined by Andera Gjestvang to assist. They will hold practices Mondays and Fridays 9:30am-11am. More info to come and a meeting for anyone interested in diving for the Gators!
Regular summer practices are daily, but are also very flexible for your family. They will begin on June 1st. You are able to drop your child off for their practice time. As a guideline, practices 3 times a week are recommended. The level of commitment is your families’ choice.
Fridays are a favorite for kids-- it is Donut Day!!

More information if this is the case! All other meets are typically on Thursdays. Please watch for emails if this changes!

There are 5 swim meets and a Championship Meet each season. Meets are optional and you are able to sign up to swim according to your family schedule. However, every family is required to work ONE HALF of each swim meet in which your child swims. As with any other sport or activity your child participates in, these meets CANNOT run without volunteers. Jobs for parents include timer, ribbons, clerk of course, runner to name a few. All jobs are easy (but can sound hard!) and parents will be trained.
*** NEW OPPORTUNITY ****
We've been offered the opportunity for training for officials by PPSL. There are 2 sessions that will be done over Zoom on May 27th @ 7pm and June 2nd @ 7pm. This is one of the volunteer positions available for meets ... and this training is provided by one of the USA officials from swimming.

Our concession stand at home swim meets will be run by the Snack Shack . The Gator Grill will still be available during the meets where we sell hamburgers and hot dogs. Families are being asked to pay $5.00 for each child with a $10.00 maximum per family to keep the Snack Shack stocked and the Gator Grill going! This is added in your registration fees when you sign up online.
We are switching it up for 2021. In lieu of group lessons, all younger swimmers will be part of the team calling them Minis! Click here for more information on Mini Gators!
