Welcome to Gower Swim Team!
Whether you are a beginner swimmer or have been swimming for years, we welcome you! Gower Swim Team is a sport for the entire family. Our coaches provide instruction in a safe environment that will help you improve. Whether you are looking to learn the four basic strokes or looking to "cut time", our coaches are prepared to help you.
Practices start in early May after school and then transition into the morning and afternoon when school breaks for the summer. Swim meets are typically on Thursday evenings (sometimes Friday) beginning in late May through late June. Every swimmer may swim at all of the meets and will earn placement ribbons, but it's mostly about the fun of swimming and being a part of a spirited, enthusiastic team.
We ask that all parents participate by “working” the meets. We have found that, just like the swimmers, the experience becomes much more meaningful to parents when you’ve done your part in making the swim season successful.
The goals of our Swim Team are:
Have Fun (we've perfected this! See below...!)
Improve Swimming Skills
Generate Healthy Competition, Respect and Sportsmanship
Encourage Self-Discipline and Commitment
Respect Individual Differences
Promote Camaraderie and Team Spirit
Swim team registration will open in early February. Get ready for another amazing Gower summer full of fun!
