Gators – Summer Swim Team
The Gators Swim Team is a summer-only (May – early July), community based competitive swim team, open to children between the ages of 5 and 18 on May 1. The team includes families that are club members of the following three clubs: Great Hills Country Club, Jester and Lakewood, along with families living within the zip codes 78759 and 78750.
The child must be able to swim a pool length (25 yards) of freestyle, breathing every third stroke and a pool length of backstroke (Swim America Level 6) before the first meet of the season. Swimmers who are not yet ready for the fun-competitive team have the opportunity to enroll in local Pre-Summer league swim instruction classes to prepare themselves for the summer. The Gator Swim Team is run by parent volunteers.Gators Website
